The College has suspended all College-sponsored travel to international destinations through May 13, 2020. Trips scheduled to begin after May 13 will be evaluated on an ongoing basis, and the community will be informed of the status of these trips in the coming weeks and months.
While the College is not putting limits on domestic travel for College business at this time, we strongly request that faculty and staff consider whether planned travel is essential to your work. If it is not essential, we recommend postponing. Please review any plans with the vice president of your division or, for those in Athletics, the Athletic Director, for approval prior to traveling.
International Travel Registration
If you are traveling internationally through May 13, 2020, you must register your travel here prior to your departure.
If you have been abroad at any time since February 21, 2020, and have not yet registered, please submit your travel details immediately. College employees should also notify their immediate supervisor of any planned personal international travel.
We strongly recommend that all members of our community reconsider ANY personal international travel plans through May 13, 2020, especially to or through areas included in CDC travel alerts.
For the benefit of the Holy Cross community, if you are traveling internationally, you must register your travel here prior to your departure. If you have been abroad at any time since February 21, 2020, and have not yet registered, please submit your travel details immediately. College employees should also notify their immediate supervisor of any planned personal international travel.
Any member of the College community who travels to, or has a layover in, a country designated as Level 3 by the CDC due to COVID-19 — whether the country’s designation occurs before departure or during the trip — is subject to 14-day self-quarantine restrictions prior to returning to campus.
If traveling abroad, we strongly suggest that U.S. citizens register travel through the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service to allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling and living abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
The College has not issued guidelines for personal domestic travel at this time. Use your best judgement and take proper precautions to limit your chances of getting sick.
