College issues travel directive
In the next few weeks, many members of our campus community may be traveling for work, school or personal reasons.
Due to the continued spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the college is issuing a travel directive that applies to all faculty, staff and students.
Individuals who are arriving on campus or returning from any country designated by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as Level 2 or higher due to COVID-19 contagion risk, must:
Failure to comply with this campus-arrival directive increases the risk to campus and the surrounding community. As a result, any willful disregard or violation of this directive may be subject to college sanction.
Countries with travel restrictions as of March 10, 2020, include China, Iran, Italy, Japan and South Korea.
Use basic protective measures
At the current time, there have not been any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Osage County. However, as you’re traveling over spring break, it’s still a good idea to take precautions to avoid exposure to any illnesses such as cold and flu.
College policy on foreign travel
Foreign travel for college business must be approved prior to making arrangements.
All official college communication from the core executive team will be directed through the division of marketing and communication. Decisions will be based solely on official reports from the CDC and the Osage County Health Department.
Updates will be posted each week on this website.
