Do I need to self-quarantine or be tested for COVID-19 after returning from travel (business or personal)? (Added August 16)
Per the University’s travel guidance for fall 2020, business and personal travel should be postponed or limited as much as possible. When travel is necessary, individuals should take all necessary precautions consistent with the Protect Purdue Pledge. These include wearing masks, especially indoors, practicing social distancing and avoiding large crowds, as well as increasing personal hygiene practices like frequent handwashing.
All travelers returning from domestic travel outside of Indiana should consider whether or not to self-quarantine for 14 days upon return and prior to physical presence on any Purdue campus, given the current prevalence of the virus at points of travel. Additionally, travelers should consider being tested for COVID-19 upon return and having a negative COVID-19 test result prior to returning to campus.
