Travel Guidance Update, March 30, 2020

Dartmouth-supported international and domestic travel remains prohibited for faculty and staff at this time with an option to apply for an exemption from
your dean/supervisor. Personal travel, including domestic travel outside New Hampshire and Vermont, is strongly discouraged due to possible self-quarantine requirements upon arrival at your destination, following your return home, or both.

Returning Home, March 17, 2020

Faculty, staff, and students still traveling internationally or domestically are advised to return home immediately, if possible, or risk being unable to depart. The longer travelers wait to make return travel arrangements the greater the likelihood that they may not be able to travel when they wish to, or that they may be unable to travel at all for an unknown period. Also, please be aware that International SOS may not be able to assist travelers with alternative travel arrangements at this time.

Update, March 14, 2020

Given the rapidly evolving nature of travel restrictions, at this time we are prohibiting all Dartmouth-sponsored international and domestic travel for staff, faculty, and students. We encourage finding alternate means of conducting business, such as teleconferencing.

Personal travel, both domestic and international, is also discouraged. Students who are departing campus to return home are exempt from this restriction. If you are traveling within the United States, please check the state and territorial health department websites for the latest information.

Travelers returning to campus or visiting campus from countries identified by the CDC as a Level 3 risk are required to self-quarantine off-campus for 14 days. 

Travelers returning to campus or visiting campus from countries identified by the CDC as a Level 1 or Level 2 risk are required to self-observe for 14 days. 

Questions: Students and their families should contact Student Affairs at 603-646-2980 with questions about travel. Faculty and staff should email the COVID-19 Task Force at [email protected].  

Visitors from CDC Level 3 Countries:  Visitors from CDC Level 3 countries will need to quarantine for 14 days before arriving on campus and should contact their host departments. 

Travel Waivers: All Dartmouth-sponsored international and domestic travel has been suspended due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. The link for Travel Waivers has been temporarily disabled.

Travel Exceptions: Faculty and staff may petition their dean or vice president for a travel exception to the travel prohibition if they feel that the proposed travel is essential for Dartmouth. The process for a travel exception petition will include the several steps outlined on Global Dartmouth.

AthleticsThe Ivy League presidents announced their unanimous decision to cancel all spring athletics competitions and practices for the remainder of the academic year. In light of the pandemic, and the growing number of schools that have moved classes online for the rest of their semesters, it is no longer feasible for these competitions and practices to continue. This is a heavy blow to our student-athletes, who have sacrificed and trained so hard in their respective sports, and we regret the impact of these circumstances. Winter teams and student-athletes who have qualified for postseason play will be able to participate in league competitions.

Travel Advisories: Please visit the CDC Coronavirus Disease 2019 Information for Travel for the latest updates.
