Reminder: U of G research travel restrictions


As a reminder to the research community, and as outlined in the Research Phase-In Framework, travel to off-campus research sites, including sites throughout Canada, is restricted. If making travel plans, refer to the University’s guidance on travel during COVID-19.

All University-funded or sponsored travel to countries outside of Canada is cancelled/postponed until further notice. This applies to faculty, staff, students and researchers, and includes international exchanges and placements.

For researchers, U of G travel includes all research-related travel that requires a travel reimbursement claim from the University of Guelph. Researchers should also take note of the update from CIHR/NSERC/SSHRC pertaining to travel claims related to COVID-19 travel disruptions.

Anyone planning international travel should follow advice on the Government of Canada’s travel advisory website. At this point, the Government of Canada recommends avoiding all travel outside of Canada.

People arriving or returning to Canada from any international destination must self-monitor for symptoms and self-isolate for 14 days, in keeping with the Government of Canada’s directive. Monitor for fever, cough and difficulty breathing, and report any symptoms to your health care provider or to Public Health.
