Given the high level of COVID-19 spread in our communities, any unnecessary travel is highly discouraged. If you must travel outside the state or country for work, study, medical care, or personal safety and security, do what you can to protect yourself and your family.
Before you travel, think about:
Protect yourself and others during your trip:
If you are sick or have tested positive for COVID-19, do not travel.
Out-of-state travel is highly discouraged.
For international travel, follow federal guidelines.
The CDC now requires all air passengers arriving to the U.S. from another country to get tested for COVID-19 no more than three days before their flight departs. Travelers will need to provide proof of the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight.

ISLA is recommending that all staff members and students follow these Guidelines established by the MDH. It is the responsibility of individual staff and students to share information with ISLA about travel outside of MN, by sending an email to [firstname.lastname@example.org]. If you feel that your (staff member) or your student’s travel plans/social activity have put themselves, and potentially others, at risk for exposure to COVID-19, then please take responsibility for quarantining after returning home. Only the staff member/student who traveled outside of the state needs to consider quarantining. Traveling outside of MN would qualify for the shortened quarantine period, as long as all other criteria are met. Please see the Shortened Quarantine Request for further information.
