Travel Guidance

The following outlines guidance for domestic and international travel: 

Domestic travel

On June 29, Governor Gina Raimondo announced a mandatory 14-day quarantine for travelers coming to Rhode Island from any state with a daily positivity rate of 5% or greater.  The list of states can be found here, and the list will be revised on a weekly basis. This guidance is still currently in effect. 

If you are returning to Rhode Island from one of these states and had a negative COVID-19 test within the past 72 hours of your return to Rhode Island, you will be exempt from the 14-day quarantine. However, you still need to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days, wear a mask in public, and follow physical distancing guidelines. Employees will be asked to submit documentation of their test results directly to UHR at [email protected] before their first day of returning to work. 

International travel

 If you have traveled internationally, you must remain in quarantine for 14 days from the time of your return to Rhode Island and not report to work in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Effective March 16, all staff will be paid during self-quarantine or self-isolation. Staff who can work remotely are expected to do so. Managers will inform employess that they are approved to work remotely.
