Duquesne University Issues Official Policy to Self-Isolate Per CDC Travel Health Notice

On March 1, Duquesne made it official policy that any Duquesne student or employee returning to the U.S. from a destination with a CDC travel health notice of level 3 or higher must self-isolate for 14 days prior to returning to the Pittsburgh campus.

Individuals returning to the United States from a destination with CDC travel health notice level 3 must return to their homes or similarly suitable locations as a protective measure for themselves and others. If you have any questions, please contact University Health Services.

Destinations presently under a level 3 health notice include China, Italy, South Korea, and Iran. The University continues to monitor CDC travel health notices for any changes.

Individuals should continue to monitor for symptoms and, if any arise, contact their primary care provider. We urge everyone to practice preventive behavior.

With Italy having reached CDC travel health notice level 3, the University has closed our Rome campus. The Dublin campus remains open.

      • The University facilitated the return of most students and faculty from Rome to the United States, where they are isolating at home.
      • All of the students will be able to continue their coursework online for the rest of the semester.

The University is thankful for the steps many have taken to be helpful and supportive of in ensuring safety and security of our community. We will continue to update as new and relevant information or policy developments arise.
