Travel Notices

In light of updated guidance from the CDC, NSU has updated its travel policy for faculty and staff. Please see the revised guidance below and consult with your dean or vice president if you have any questions.

The CDC has issued Travel Health Notices which have been updated for those individuals who are fully vaccinated. Acknowledging the risk associated with travel, especially flying, and that some travel is required to further the mission and critical work of NSU, the following guidance has been provided.

NSU Sponsored Travel

All University-sponsored international travel is suspended for those not vaccinated, and requires approval from the NSU’s Chief Operating Officer or Provost for those who are fully vaccinated.

  • University-related domestic travel is limited to those with proof of vaccination for essential travel. Essential travel includes travel necessary for NSU business, grants or programs that cannot be conducted remotely and may be approved by the Dean or department vice president.
  • Travel for conferences and academic meetings will be considered for those who are fully vaccinated, and may be approved by the Dean or department vice president.
  • Any travel to and from NSU’s Regional Campuses must be conducted via car rental.
  • Those fully vaccinated, as defined by the CDC, may resume campus activities when they return from travel.
  • Individuals who have not been vaccinated, must self-isolate for 7 days after travel, and take a PCR test between days 3 -5. They must obtain a negative PCR test and complete all 7 days before resuming on-campus activities. These individuals will follow all CDC guidance for traveling.

University Visitors / Candidates

Domestic Travelers

  • Domestic travelers who are fully vaccinated, as defined by the CDC, may participate in activities at NSU without restriction.
  • Domestic travelers who have not been vaccinated fully must self-isolate for 7 days after travel prior to coming to campus, and take a PCR test between days 3 -5. They must obtain a negative PCR test and complete all 7 days before attending on-campus activities. These individuals will follow all CDC guidance for traveling.

International Travelers

After travel, those fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine or a vaccine authorized for emergency use by the World Health Organization will:

  • Get a PCR test 3-5 days after travel.
    o If test is positive, isolate to protect others from getting infected.
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if symptoms develop.

After travel for those unvaccinated will:

  • Get a PCR test 3-5 days after travel and stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.
    o Even if test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.
    o If test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
  • If opt not to test, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether tested or not.
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if develop symptoms.

For all travel, NSU recommends limiting out-of-state travel, avoiding travel to high-risk locations, and taking all precautions when a person does travel.

Employees are discouraged from taking personal or professional travel that may bring them to areas in which COVID-19 is particularly prevalent. If you do, we ask that you check the prevalence of COVID-19 in the area you are visiting and use great caution. This CDC web page is a helpful resource to assess COVID-19 prevalence. 

NSU may modify this guidance as deemed necessary.

If you have COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19, please contact COVIDCase@nova.edu.
