FAU Travel Restrictions 

  • All outbound international university-related travel is suspended.
  • All new domestic university travel will require pre-approval by the appropriate vice president, or dean in the case of a college, before expenditures/commitments are to be made. The approving authority should determine that the proposed travel is essential before it is approved.
  • Individuals returning from international travel or a cruise must self-quarantine for 14 days from the date of return to the United States. This does not include U.S. territories.
  • Supervisors are required to ask personnel if they have traveled internationally or taken a cruise within the last 14 days. If an employee confirms international or cruise travel, the employee will be mandated to self-quarantine for 14 days from the date of return to the U.S. 

Essential travel is defined as travel which is essential to FAU’s mission and operation that can only be completed by physically being present and doesn’t create an unacceptable health hazard. Essential travel includes traveling to a workshop linked to ensuring accreditation, attending a conference where you are a presenter on behalf of FAU, or any other travel associated with ensuring the successful delivery of a critical mission area of the university. 

All other travel is considered non-essential and may not be approved. Examples include attending a conference where you are not a presenter. 

Any exceptions to the requirement that university travel be deemed essential will be at the discretion of the respective vice president or dean.

FAU will continue to follow travel guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
