Travel and visitor policies

Travel policies

With all travel, individuals are expected to follow all relevant social-distancing policies. Individuals must also adhere to standards and travel advisories set by New York State and the CDC and meet any additional restrictions required by the state and local jurisdiction to which they are traveling. It is incumbent upon the traveler to be aware of local social-distancing guidelines.

Travel remains complex due to various federal and NYS travel restrictions and quarantines. Those who are approved to travel internationally or to U.S. States that fall under NYS travel advisories should plan to remain away from campus for 14 days after their return and should monitor their health per CDC guidelines.


Restrictions on visitors coming to campus

In order to limit campus density, only essential visitors with formal appointments in units and invited guests with prior approval will be allowed to visit any facility at the River Campus and the Eastman School of Music Campus. Formal visitors and invited guests should have an obvious and documented relationship that overtly furthers the University’s academic and/or research mission. All approved visitors and guests will be required to complete the University’s COVID training and conduct daily symptom tracking. Casual guests and non-essential visitors are prohibited from these locations. Students may not host visitors or guests during fall semester.

All formal visitors and invited guests must register with the University to ensure that COVID-related training and University expectations regarding PPE is conveyed. Visitors and guests arriving from locations requiring quarantine by NYS or other health agencies must adhere to these quarantine requirements before coming onto campus.

Admissions tours will be adapted to maintain physical distancing for spaces on campus and student and guest numbers will be capped. Records will be kept regarding the staff and visitors in each session each day in the event that information is needed for subsequent contact tracing.
