John Carroll University has not prohibited personal travel, domestically or abroad, by an employee. However, you are encouraged to educate yourself before you travel to understand current advisories, trends in key COVID-19 metrics in the area you are visiting, and quarantine requirements upon your return. Ohio has established travel restrictions, which is updated weekly, that advise a 14-day self-quarantine period following travel to certain U.S. states, depending on the COVID-19 test positivity rate in those states each week.
Employees should be aware that if they travel to a state on Ohio’s travel restriction list, the employee will be required to self-quarantine away from campus for 14 days upon their return. In addition, health officials or Human Resources may ask employees to self-quarantine for 14 days following travel to a location that poses a significant risk of contracting COVID-19. You can be required to utilize time off balances for work time missed due to your need to quarantine.
