Guidance on Rutgers-approved Domestic and International Travel by Faculty, Staff, and Students

While we are beginning to see hopeful signs that the COVID-19 pandemic may be easing, with case numbers dropping nation-wide and the vaccine roll-out progressing, it is nevertheless too soon to let down our guard, particularly given that new variants are discovered on an almost daily basis.  We know that some mission-critical travel by members of the Rutgers community may be necessary over the course of the coming months, in spite of the pandemic.  To reduce the risk of faculty, staff, students, post-doctoral fellows, and administrators contracting the virus through domestic and international travel, we have developed guidelines and processes to help us consider critical travel fairly on a universitywide level, to help protect the health and safety of us all.
