University-related travel

Missouri S&T’s Student Health Services has issued new guidance around travel for students, faculty and staff on university-related travel. Travelers are encouraged to be fully vaccinated prior to any travel and are encouraged to first consider non-travel options for conducting necessary university business. If such options do not exist or are not appropriate for that business, then a traveler should obtain written authorization from their supervisor confirming that the trip is necessary, using the travel authorization policies in place for each unit.

Those who are not fully vaccinated should submit a Travel Safety Plan to when requesting travel authorization from their supervisor. Fully vaccinated means two weeks following the second dose of a two-dose series or one dose of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccination.

Those who are fully vaccinated and have been approved for travel from their appropriate division leader, do not need to complete a Travel Safety Plan, unless traveling internationally, and should follow these guidelines based on recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for domestic and international travel.

Personal travel

For personal travel, the CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated because travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow CDC’s recommendations for unvaccinated people. Please do not come to campus after travel if you experience any COVID-19 symptoms.

All international travelers should complete and submit a Travel Safety Plan to, regardless of vaccination status.

Please review additional travel guidance on the coronavirus website under the Travel heading.
