COVID-19 Recovery: Travel


Should I self-quarantine after travel?  (updated 6/29/20)

Per CDC guidelines, anyone arriving to the U.S. from an international location should quarantine for 14 days. Public health officials also recommend that individuals quarantine after domestic travel.

Individuals who travel should monitor for symptoms and contact their medical provider if symptoms present. To further prevent the spread of coronavirus, individuals should wear face coverings when 6 feet of social distance cannot be maintained.

What restrictions has Northwest placed on travel?  (updated 6/19/20)

Effective March 12, Northwest has suspended non-essential University-supported travel until further notice (i.e. conferences, trainings, association meetings).

In regard to personal travel, Northwest urges its campus community to be mindful of the health risks, especially in geographic areas with widespread infection. Employees who travel should self-monitor for symptoms and follow their medical provider’s instructions, including a self-quarantine for 14 days if symptoms present.

Employees who have questions or need guidance about their travel plans should contact the Office of Human Resources at 660.562.1127 or hrwebpg@nwmissouri.edu.
