All University-sponsored travel should be suspended, including but not limited to conference attendance, training and development, and grant supported travel.
Faculty and staff who normally engage in job-related travel should explore video conferencing as an alternative to travel. Exceptions to this provision may be granted by the president, provost, or appropriate dean or vice president. Read more about travel in the University's Policy and Procedures on COVID-19 below:
If after such considerations you are planning to travel to an area that is listed as Level 4 or Level 3 travel risk by the CDC, the travel should be cancelled. Travel to Level 2 risk locations should be closely evaluated based on the employees’ own health and the business need for the travel, and the division leader (appropriate vice president, dean or provost) must approve such Level 2 travel. At this point in time, travel to Level 1 risk locations may continue, especially if delaying it or canceling it would have a detrimental effect on the University’s business.

Some employees may be concerned about risk and want to preemptively cancel travel even to Level 1 risk locations. You should consult with the employee, your supervisor and your Division Leader to make that decision.
Anyone traveling overseas on a Bucknell-sponsored trip must inform the appropriate division leader. This will greatly assist the University in supporting travelers who face hardships during their travel and/or who become stranded.
If you become sick while traveling, contact your supervisor and work with a healthcare provider to take the appropriate measures.
