Several states in the U.S. and many regions of the world are experiencing a high number of cases of COVID-19. The university is strongly recommending that UB faculty, staff and students avoid traveling to regions that are being impacted by the virus.
UB’s protocol for COVID-19 related quarantine, outlined in UB's Health and Safety Guidelines, complies with current guidelines from the New York State Department of Health and the Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH).
For quarantine requirements related to travel, please see the precautionary quarantine section of UB's Health and Safety Guidelines.
The university is assisting students on a one-on-one basis if they are unable to travel to UB because of travel bans. International students who are unable to return are advised to contact International Student Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the best course of action for continuing their academic careers at UB.
Faculty and staff might have already made travel arrangements and incurred UB business-related expenses for upcoming travel that may have been cancelled due to concerns related to COVID-19. Visit the UB Travel Services website for information on UB and SUNY policies on reimbursement.
Please check with event organizers for the most updated information about scheduled UB conferences or events.
