Hiring pause and travel restrictions lifted for UF faculty and staff

Last week, the university lifted its hiring pause as well as COVID-related restrictions on travel and visitors.

Dean’s approval and the requirement that travel be essential are no longer required. UF’s Travel Office recommends the TripSource website as a resource to help UF faculty and staff make informed decisions concerning travel restrictions. If you have any questions, please contact the UF Travel Office at its campus location in Elmore Hall, via phone at (352) 392-1241 or by email at travel@ufl.edu.

What about personal travel?

With summer break just around the corner, and given the lifting of various COVID-related restrictions, you may find yourself planning your first vacation away from home since before the pandemic. To help you plan a safe trip, we recommend you check the CDC’s Travel Planner, which provides state, local, tribal and territorial government restrictions. You can also find resources and travel toolkits on the CDC’s Travel website.
