Travel Restrictions

At this time, there are no restrictions on domestic travel.

The University will not mandate reporting of personal or business travel. Travel is defined as non-local to the St. Louis metropolitan area, using public transportation, moving by shared vehicle, living with individuals who are unvaccinated or with unknown vaccination status, attending indoor events with large amounts of individuals who are unvaccinated or with an unknown vaccine status. 

  • Unvaccinated members of the campus community should limit travel. If travel is essential, they should take the following steps before and after travel: 
    • Before travel:
      • Get tested for COVID-19 one to three days before their trip.
    • After travel:
      • Get tested for COVID-19 three to five days after travel.
      • Those who test negative should monitor their symptoms for 7 days.
      • Those that develop symptoms or test positive should isolate themselves from others and report their positive test using the Daily Wellness Check.
      • Avoid being around people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
      • Follow all state and local health guidelines.
      • Those that are exposed to a positive case should quarantine and monitor for symptoms for seven days with a negative COVID-19 test or for 10 days without a test.
  • Travel guidelines for fully vaccinated members of the campus community include:
    • Getting tested following travel
    • Monitoring for symptoms of Covid-19; isolating and getting tested if they develop symptoms
    • Those that develop symptoms or test positive should isolate themselves from others and report their positive test using the Daily Wellness Check.
    • Following all state and local health guidelines
    • Fully vaccinated campus members who are exposed to a positive case do not need to quarantine, but should get tested three to five days following exposure and wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days following exposure. 
  • Fully vaccinated students traveling abroad for international rotations starting Nov. 15, 2021 are required to ask their next rotation about possible quarantine following return.
  • All additional information pertaining to international rotation travel should be directed to the International Travel Oversight Committee or by contacting roma.ryan@uhsp.edu.

*An individual is fully vaccinated 14 days after the first dose of a one-dose series, or 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose series.
