The Provost Office is continuing to suspend all University-supported international travel by University of Nevada, Reno employees and students. The rationale for this decision is based on following. First, the US Department of State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are continuing to discourage travel to most international locales due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Second, these agencies are also warning that travelers should expect extensive disruptions due to quarantines, border closures and other travel restrictions. And finally, should complications arise related to COVID 19 during a student’s or faculty’s international travels, their medical or travel delay expenses will not be covered by the University’s international travel insurance policy, which does not protect travelers from pandemic related health and travel issues. Therefore, considering University employee and students’ health and safety, international travel restrictions will remain in place until further notice.
