As the global situation regarding COVID-19 continues to develop, so do University precautions and protocols. Harvard is currently allowing fully vaccinated faculty and staff to travel within the United States and to international destinations rated Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 for COVID-19 by the U.S. (CDC). While many scheduled trip destinations currently may be Level 4, the CDC ratings remain influx, changing daily. Since group travel is planned far in advance, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to confirm your study leader's participation before cancellation fees begin for your program, but we remain hopeful the destinations offered will fall within the bounds of University protocols to send faculty.
