Yes. UTMB is committed to the health and safety of our faculty, staff, students, patients, visitors and the communities we serve. As a major health care provider for a large and diverse region, UTMB must ensure adequate staffing levels to provide safe and effective care in our hospitals and clinics. To protect the health of our employees, students and patients, and consistent with guidance from the University of Texas System, UTMB has put into place restrictions, requirements and guidance regarding travel for all faculty, staff and students.
UTMB has suspended all university-sponsored travel—both international and domestic—by faculty, staff and students until further notice. Any exceptions must be approved by the Office of the President. Personal travel—both international and domestic—is strongly discouraged at this time; employees who elect to travel will have additional reporting requirements. All travelers must be cleared through Employee Health or Student Health before they can return to a UTMB campus or clinic location.
