Resources for University Travelers

Page last updated March 10.


All students, faculty and staff should consider whether any mode of personal travel is necessary. We also encourage the campus community to seek alternatives to business-related travel such as virtual meetings or conference calls.

The CDC has issued travel advisories for countries including China, South Korea, Iran, Italy and Japan. The CDC has also extended “after-travel” precautions to all travelers returning from countries with widespread (ongoing) transmission. Travelers returning from China, Iran, Italy and South Korea are now being asked to “stay home” for 14 days from the time they left an areas with widespread, ongoing community spread and practice social distancing.

Additionally, given the rapidly changing conditions of the global outbreak, University of California President Janet Napolitano issued a directive for all members of the UC community. Faculty, staff and students are instructed to avoid all non-essential, university-related travel to countries determined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to be of high risk for widespread and sustained community transmission of the virus. This would be countries that have COVID-19 Level 3 Travel Health Notices—China, Iran, Italy and South Korea—and COVID-19 Level 2 Travel Health Notices, which currently includes Japan.

If you do need to travel on university business, be sure to use Connexxus. If you do not use Connexxus, be sure to register your trip with UC Away.
