Updated travel guideline based on revised CDC guidelines

Please send questions to travelalert@mlhs.org.

In accordance with updated CDC guidelines, Infectious Disease and Occupational Health leadership has updated our internal travel guidelines. All work-related domestic and international travel should remain cancelled.

Effective immediately all employees who have returned to the United States on or after March 11th  from China, South Korea, Italy and Iran or the additional European Countries listed below will be quarantined (and not allowed to report to work) for 14 days from their arrival back in the U.S.

Quarantined employees should self-monitor their temperature twice daily and contact their Primary Care Physician/Department of Health should they develop symptoms. Per HR policy, quarantined employees (not due to a work exposure) are to use their Basic Leave Time for the 14-day quarantine period. For employees with a documented illness, the Leave of Absence policy applies. Employees are required to notify their managers as soon as possible if the new quarantine guidance applies to them and/or if they are returning from one of the countries listed below:
