College community members who have traveled outside of the U.S. within 14 days of coming to campus should discuss their plans with International Student Services, Student Affairs, or Human Resources as appropriate. Faculty must inform their dean or department chair; staff must contact Human Resources; students must contact Student Health Services. International students are further advised to contact the International Center if they are arriving in the U.S. from abroad. See the COVID-19 FAQ for international students for more information for international students.

College community members should be aware of the U.S. Centers for Disease and Control Prevention’s most recent guidance related to COVID-19 and international travel. Recommendations for international travelers coming to the United States include:

  • Getting tested 1 – 3 days before travel.
  • Getting tested 3 – 5 days after travel.
  • Staying home (i.e., in Columbia residence) for 7 to 14 days after travel.
    • If you test negative, stay home for a full 7 days after travel.
    • If you don’t get tested, stay home for a full 10 days after travel.
    • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk of illness for a full 14 days, whether you get tested or not.
  • Following state and local recommendations or requirements related to travel.

The College’s no travel policy for faculty and staff to attend conferences, etc. remains in effect until further notice. Exceptions are possible, but must be approved in advance by the President.
