Dear faculty, staff, students and residents:
UT Health San Antonio is extending the suspension of domestic and international business travel for faculty, staff and students through March 31, 2021. This extension is necessary to protect our university community members from the risk of infection and spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Prohibition of domestic and international business travel will remain in effect through March 31, 2021. The travel moratorium will continue to be reexamined to determine when the public health risk warrants the easing of such restrictions.
No new business-related travel requests will be considered until after April 1, 2021. Rare exceptions may be granted for reasons that are of a mission-critical or life-saving nature. In these cases, the proposed travel must be approved in advance by the traveler’s dean or vice president, as well as by the chief operating officer.
Your understanding of these unprecedented conditions is greatly appreciated.
Ginny Gomez-Leon, MBA, CPA
Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
