WVU Medicine Travel Guidelines

Due to the nature of their work, WVU clinical faculty, residents and fellows will follow WVU Medicine guidelines on travel:

  • For domestic travel: An employee who visited a domestic location and who is asymptomatic can return to work with no restrictions. The employee will be required to wear a face mask and self-monitor for symptoms.
  • For international travel/cruise ship travel: An employee who visited an international location or was on a cruise ship, prior to starting or returning to work, must:
    • Self-quarantine/self-monitor for 14 days (preferred option)
    • If 14 days is not feasible, they must self-quarantine/self-monitor for 5 days, then return to work with a face mask for the next 9 days.

Other faculty, staff and students should follow WVU Travel Guidelines.
