New travel restrictions for the IU community
Indiana University is banning all travel to any country the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified with a level 3 travel advisory. This now includes South Korea. Travel to China also remains suspended.
The coronavirus situation is evolving rapidly and all travelers, especially in or around the areas most affected by COVID-19, need to be aware of the possibility that new travel restrictions, transportation cancelations, or periods of required isolation could be put in place while travelers are overseas.
IU will grant exceptions for humanitarian reasons to those traveling to these countries to assist with pandemic response. Please submit requests for exceptions to the AVPpsia@iu.edu.
Quarantine after returning to the U.S. from abroad
- Anyone travelling to a CDC designated level 2 or 3 country will be required to self-quarantine off-campus for a period of 14-days before returning to Indiana University.
- If you are returning from a country which has a confirmed case of coronavirus COVID-19, please complete the secure IU Traveler Information Form before your return. Our public health team will get in touch with you directly for further guidance.
- If you are returning from a country which has no confirmed cases of the virus, there is nothing additional you need to do at this time. If you have questions about your travel or specific situation, please email AVPpsia@iu.edu.
