Gannon issues updated travel policy for Erie, Ruskin campuses

Posted: March 3, 2021

We are revising travel policies for students, faculty and staff on our Erie and Ruskin campuses. The changes reflected in the new policy represent a significant loosening of our restrictions. Gannon’s travel policy is attached for your convenience and posted on Some notable changes in this include the following:

As with our previous guidelines, the travel restrictions attached to this email do not apply to those who travel out of state for routine purposes or because they are commuting home. The Health Center will provide guidance to those who travel out of state for less than 24 hours for special trips. Please still register your travel in advance at the link above even if it will be for less than 24 hours.

Please do not interpret the issuing of this new travel guidance as permission to travel liberally. After all, the CDC continues to recommend that we do not travel at this time. The CDC suggests we delay travel and stay home to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19.

Like you, we look forward to the days when such restrictions are unnecessary. For now, we believe these guidelines will help keep us in community together and face-to-face through the end of the semester.
