Berklee-Sponsored Spring Break Trips
Berklee is restricting all travel, including our annual spring break trips. Members of our community who are scheduled to travel with Berklee during spring break will receive direct communications with additional details from trip leadership.
Personal Travel: For Students, Faculty, and Staff
For the health and wellbeing of the Berklee community, we strongly encourage members of our community to consider suspending personal travel that could bring travelers in contact with large groups of people.
We do understand that some personal circumstances may require travel. Please note that until further notice, any community members traveling to or returning from countries designated as levels 2 or 3 will not be allowed to return to campus until they have completed the required 14-day self-quarantine. Please be aware that this list continues to expand. Should you choose to travel for any reason, please submit your travel information.
Any self reports related to travel and/or any health-related symptoms that arise from travel will be handled with the highest degree of sensitivity and in accordance with all applicable policies, laws, and procedures.
General Travel Information
If you are traveling internationally or domestically, please be mindful of the current situation involving COVID-19 in the country or state you will be visiting. When traveling internationally, when you attempt to return to the U.S., you may be delayed and quarantined, or not allowed entry. At this time, the federal government has not indicated this will occur, although delays are more likely depending on the status of the country you are visiting. Furthermore, airlines may cancel flights to and from these destinations with little warning.
If you are traveling, please follow the guidelines for self-quarantine and continue to be aware of the symptoms of COVID-19, which can appear within two to 14 days after exposure.
