Faculty, staff and students are expected to abide by the governor’s stay-at-home order and should not be traveling. All business travel is suspended, and personal travel is strongly discouraged.

See the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel website for the most up-to-date information.

Recommendations regarding quarantine for those returning from travel change daily. If you must travel, please contact Student Health Services at 618-453-3311 or for quarantine guidance before returning to campus. Faculty and staff who have traveled or self-quarantined should communicate with their immediate supervisors, and students should contact Saluki Cares.

Even if your travel location is not under a travel restriction or is known to have an outbreak of COVID-19, there are precautions that can be taken to help prevent you from getting sick.

  • Avoid contact with sick people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at 60%–95% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
    • It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.

If you are feeling sick, it is not recommended that you travel. Doing so puts you at risk of getting another infection as well as potentially infecting others.
