As we approach the final week of the in-person portion of the fall semester, we recognize that many of you will be traveling to be with your families or loved ones. This year, however, it is vital that you take extra safety precautions. Your COVID-19 test status should inform your decision on how to travel and what to do when you get to your destination.

|Here are some additional tips to keep in mind:|
Upon arrival to your destination you may need to quarantine based on local regulations after traveling either by air or car. Please check the regulations at your destination before arrival.
Make a travel plan and familiarize yourself with the local guidelines for your destination.
Pack sufficient hand sanitizer and face coverings. Also pack some food and water in the event dining options along your route are closed.
Practice physical distancing at all times.
