Updated March 13, 2020
Western is suspending all college-supported international travel until further notice and all out-of-state travel scheduled through May 31, 2020. This decision was made using current Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and with the interests of our students, employees, and community in mind. We are continuing to monitor those guidelines for any future domestic business and student-related travel in the coming weeks.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have released safety information for travelers. If you plan to travel, please review the travel information on these sites.
In alignment with the State of Wisconsin Department of Administration, Western employees or students who travel personally, either internationally or to a state that has sustained community transmission as determined by the CDC on the date prior to travel, will not be allowed to return to the College for 14 calendar days after their return. This travel-related restriction will remain in place until further notice as we continue to monitor the efficacy of this measure. Upon return, please follow the guidelines below:
- Notify your supervisor of your return and schedule your return to work with them
- Self-report your return to the county in which you live
- Self-quarantine at home and avoid large crowds
This direction is not applicable to students or employees who reside out of state and travel to Wisconsin for work or to attend classes/training, or for students traveling from Wisconsin to adjacent states to work at clinical sites.
