Coronavirus Information Travel Guidance

University-related travel

All university-related international and domestic travel is suspended until further notice. Any students, faculty or staff currently traveling outside the United States should contact International Affairs for guidance on returning to the U.S. and campus. This includes any international or domestic travel supported through university funds, external grants or other sources, such as endowments or gift funds. This suspension of travel pertains to all conference travel, student organization trips, university-sponsored Spring Break trips, intercollegiate athletic events, club sport events, student design team events, or any other travel affiliated with Missouri S&T.

Personal travel

For the continued well-being and safety of the S&T community, we strongly discourage personal travel, internationally or domestically, particularly to or through domestic or international locations under a travel restriction. This includes all international travel as well as travel to areas of the United States where a state of emergency has been declared.

International personal travel

Any student, faculty member or staff member who travels to or through a CDC Level 3 Travel Health Notice (high risk) country should follow CDC guidelines and stay home for 14 days from the time they return to the United States before returning to campus.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security recently (March 13) announced a new process for Americans returning to the U.S. from restricted countries.
