After traveling, do I need to be tested for COVID-19 or self-quarantine for 14 days before returning to work in a research laboratory?
Individuals returning from travel outside Greater Lafayette throughout the semester are encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 upon return to West Lafayette following the instructions here.
Domestic travelers no longer need to quarantine before returning to work in a research laboratory.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, those who choose to travel internationally — regardless of whether the travel is sponsored by the university — must stay home and monitor their health for 14 days before returning to campus and/or research laboratories. In addition, all students and employees returning from outside the US must self-quarantine for 14 days and watch for symptoms of COVID-19. Prior to returning to campus, contact the Protect Purdue Health Center to obtain medical clearance to return to campus.
