Update regarding International Travel and Covid-19
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Utah Valley University has officially cancelled all
travel through August 3 (with possible extension through the end of the summer or
beyond). All international travel is currently under a U.S. State Department Level
4 “Do Not Travel” advisory and a Center for Disease Control (CDC) Level 3 Warning
with an indefinite timeframe.
The Office for Global Engagement will not approve international travel unless these
warnings are lifted. All approvals for international travel in Summer and Fall 2020 will be tentative and
subject to reversal at any time. We highly discourage potential travelers to make any further international travel
purchases or commitments. Airline companies, hotels, and travel agencies may not
offer a refund in the case of travel disruptions or cancelations. Most countries
currently require a 14-day mandatory quarantine upon arrival.
Per UVU Policy 252, approved travelers may be required to return (at department or
personal traveler expense) if US State Department or CDC warnings are unexpectedly
reinstated even after travel has commenced. UVU’s international insurance carrier
does not cover costs for travel disruptions like quarantines or missed flights occasioned
by COVID-19. Remember that departments and/or individual travelers (faculty/staff/students)
are responsible for all non-recoverable costs of cancelled programs.
