Information about Travel
What is Pace's current policy on travel?
- All University-sponsored Study Abroad programs are canceled through 2020. This includes Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 Semester Study Abroad Programs.
- All University-sponsored travel is canceled through June 30, including any that was previously approved. Exemptions may be granted for exceptional circumstances.
- Additionally, everyone in the Pace Community—faculty, staff, or student—planning personal international travel or personal travel to parts of the United States beyond the tristate area where there are coronavirus outbreaks reported by the CDC must notify the University of your plans.
I am planning to return to Pace from a country that has widespread transmission. What do I need to do?
Students, faculty, and staff traveling from countries with widespread COVID-19 transmission designation from the CDC are required to undergo a risk assessment from University Health Care. Based on the risk assessment, a decision will be made as to whether a 14-day quarantine is recommended.
Within the last 14 days, I was in an area where COVID-19 is present AND I am exhibiting fever, cough, difficulty breathing, and/or shortness of breath. What should I do?
If you traveled in the last 14 days to a location where COVID-19 is present and feel sick with fever, cough or difficulty breathing, you should:
- Contact your health care provider right away or University Health Care through their confidential patient portal.
- All Pace Community members should report their symptoms and testing status through University Health Care's confidential patient portal.
- Ill employees should contact their direct supervisor.
- If you are seeking care, call ahead to your health care provider’s office or emergency room and advise them of your recent travel and symptoms.
- Avoid contact with others.
- Do not travel while sick.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
