Travel Guidance

Travel can increase the risks of exposure to COVID-19 to you and the community if there are other travelers with coronavirus infection.

International Travel
All UD-related international travel is suspended until further notice. 

On March 19, 2020, the US Department of State advised US citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. 

Please visit the US Department of State to view advisories for specific countries.

Domestic Travel
All non-essential UD-related domestic air travel is suspended until further notice. 

For more information about travel and COVID-19, please visit the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Self-Monitoring Precautions
For the health and safety of our community, UD is asking faculty, instructors, staff, and students who have recently traveled outside of Iowa and/or have been in contact with someone known to have COVID-19 to self-monitor for 14 days. This measure is out of an abundance of caution and in line with recommendations from the Iowa Department of Public Health. Please see University of Dubuque Self-Monitoring Checklist.

To self-monitor, please take your temperature twice a day and monitor for cough or difficulty breathing. If you feel feverish or develop a fever of 100.4F or higher, cough, or difficulty breathing, you should call your healthcare provider (students can contact the Office of Health Services at or 563.589.3857) or the Visiting Nurse Association – liaison to the IDPH – at 563.556.6200 before seeking in-person care.

Feel free to use the University of Dubuque Self-Monitoring Checklist.
