What restrictions are in place for domestic out-of-state travel, including personal travel?

July 4, 2020

This week, the Maryland secretary of health issued guidance stating that those who travel outside Maryland should be tested for COVID-19 upon their return.
Those who have job duties requiring them to be on campus or in close contact with others who choose to travel out-of-state should be tested five to seven days after returning to Maryland. Call UMB’s COVID-19 Hotline at 800-701-9863 to schedule a COVID-19 test.
UMB and UMMS travel guidance follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations by encouraging employees and students to engage in essential travel only, including travel to and from work for our essential on-campus employees who live outside Maryland.
If you do choose to travel, do not return to work/campus if you experience COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19. If you have no symptoms and have not been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, you should plan to work as usual while awaiting your COVID-19 test and its results.
