Due to the continued domestic and international spread of COVID-19, the University of Nebraska at Omaha will extend current travel guidance for all students, faculty and staff.
Effective Friday, May 1, 2020 through June 30, 2020, for UNO faculty, staff and students:
All University-related international travel is suspended.
All University-related domestic air travel is suspended.
Any proposed exceptions for University-related air travel will need to be approved in advance by the responsible Vice Chancellor or Senior Vice Chancellor.
Personal international travel is highly discouraged.
Personal domestic travel should be carefully considered and should be limited to essential travel.
Upon completion of any travel, personal or professional, faculty, staff and students may be required to self-quarantine for a period of up to 14 days as based on the current recommendations from the CDC, Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and the county health department. If self-quarantine is required, faculty/staff travelers must work with their supervisor on appropriate accommodations to work from home. Students returning from international travel should check in with Dean of Students, Cathy Pettid, or the Office of International Programs, Dr. Jane Meza.
In the event of university-related interrupted travel, individuals will be reimbursed for non-refundable expenditures as if the travel had taken place.
