Ebola Travel Guidelines
The risk of Ebola affecting our campus remains very low, but the University nevertheless continues to be aware of the situation associated with the Ebola virus. Presently, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has identified only the West African countries of Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Mali as areas for concern for travelers regarding the disease. While we have no students from these countries and are not aware of any faculty, students, or staff who have recently traveled to these countries, to proactively help protect the well-being of our campus community, the University has restricted all University-related travel to Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone or Mali until further notice. Any exceptions for travel to these countries must be approved in advance by the Provost.
Those who plan to travel to these countries for non-University related activities need to fully understand the health risks associated with travel to affected areas and that they may be subject to quarantine, screening, and travel restrictions, which may include not being allowed to return to campus until they have been cleared by the appropriate medical personnel.
Any faculty, staff, or students planning to travel on their own to Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Mali should contact the Office of the Provost (205-348-4892) prior to their departure to provide relevant travel information (name, local contact and residential information, and planned date of return to the United States). If you plan to travel, we encourage you to monitor the developments regarding Ebola and stay updated on CDC and Alabama Department of Public Health recommendations as well as changes in University requirements. The University may provide updates from time to time as the situation and recommendations evolve.
Thank you for your commitment to your own health and well-being as well as your contribution to a safe campus environment.
