Travel Planning

International travel:

All school-sponsored international travel is fully restricted until further notice to any country or area that meets any of the following criteria:

  • Has a rating by the CDC at a Level 3 or higher, or
  • Is referenced in applicable CDC guidelines, or
  • Is restricting or banning travel.

Any member of the Lipscomb community who independently visits a location that meets any of these criteria areas or travels via a cruise to any location is restricted from campus for a 14-day period. 

The list of affected countries and the warning level is dynamic. We encourage you to monitor developments through the CDC  and State Department.

Domestic travel:

University-Related Domestic Travel Restrictions
In addition to the policies in place regarding university-sponsored international travel, we are now restricting university-related domestic air travel and travel by any public transportation means (such as buses, metro, trains) that meets CDC travel guidelines until notified otherwise. (This DOES NOT include using public transportation for personal use or to get to and from work.) Employees should cancel any university-related domestic travel through May 9 that meets these criteria or guidelines and may not schedule university-related travel of any kind past May 9 without permission from Lipscomb’s Office of Risk Management.This is in keeping with travel policies that a number of other organizations have recently implemented and is in keeping with best practices issued by the CDC.

For personal domestic travel, you are encouraged to continue to follow CDC U.S. travel guidelines . When traveling within the United States, general precautions should be taken and we encourage all travelers to be cognizant of less-controlled health environments such as that of airplane travel, large public events and public transportation.


A special note regarding Spring Break travel:

If you are a member of the Lipscomb community and will be traveling outside of the United States during Spring Break, you are required to complete the below form to notify university officials of your plans:
