In accordance with guidance provided by the CDC, faculty and staff who have travelled through countries that have been designated by the U.S. Department of State for Level 2 Alerts and Level 3 Travel Warnings due to the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus in those areas are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine and are not permitted on campus.
Several countries identified by the CDC and the U. S. Department of State have received travel warnings (Level 3) and travel alerts (Level 2). Please note that any planned travel to these countries is not advised. Should Stony Brook University students, faculty or staff choose to ignore these guidelines, we have been advised that these travelers will be subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine upon return to the United States. Note that conditions in geographic areas can change at any time. Therefore, we strongly encourage all students, faculty and staff to check these regulatory websites regularly for the most updated information.
