Tuck COVID-19 Information and Campus Updates

COVID-19 and Dartmouth’s International Travel Advisory

Thursday, March 5, 2020

Dear Tuck Community:

As we move into the spring break, I want to remind everyone that Dartmouth updates related to COVID-19 can be found at https://news.dartmouth.edu/covid-19/important-updates.

In particular, I want to highlight two aspects of Dartmouth’s international travel advisory.

Travelers who have returned from CDC Level 3/2 countries in past 14 days:

“All travelers who have been to a CDC Level 3 country must self-quarantine for 14 days. Those who have been to a CDC Level 2 country must self-observe.”

Future Travel:

“Effective March 4, 2020, Dartmouth is canceling international programming such as spring break programs, internships, and field-based research, and discourages any international personal travel. Given the quickly evolving nature of COVID-19, there are serious risks of travel disruptions as well as potential exposure to COVID-19. Those who choose to travel internationally and return from or transit through a country that is rated as a CDC Level 2 or 3 will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days, and those returning from a CDC Level 1 will be required to self-observe for 14 days before returning to campus. To be clear, self-quarantine for travel that commenced after March 4, 2020 will need to occur off campus.”

In the time ahead, I encourage everyone to please read these Dartmouth COVID-19 updates regularly and carefully.  COVID-19 is a fast-moving illness.  Which countries fall into which CDC Level has been changing rapidly and almost surely will continue to change rapidly.

If you have any questions about Dartmouth’s international travel advisory, or about any other aspect of COVID-19, please continue to reach out to any of us Tuck deans.

Thanks very much for your continued understanding during this challenging time for our school and others.
