Traveling Internationally for Spring Break? New Quarantine Guidance Available

Tuesday, February 9, 2021

If you’re planning to travel internationally for Spring Break, you may be required to use your leave to quarantine before you return to campus.

Valencia College has updated its quarantine guidance for individuals working or taking classes on campus who have traveled internationally to better align with updates recently made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as with recommendations made by Orlando Health, our health partner.

Anyone traveling from a non-U.S. territory must quarantine for 10 days prior to returning to campus. For certain qualifying employees or students who have tested negative for the virus after return to the U.S., the quarantine may be modified to seven days.

To determine if your travel destination will require you to use your accrued leave to quarantine before returning to work on campus, contact Tanya Mayan, HR analyst and Valencia’s specially trained COVID-19 case manager at COVIDillness@valenciacollege.edu or 407-299-5000, extension 3047, or Organizational Development and Human Resources at HR4U@valenciacollege.edu or 407-299-5000 extension HR4U (4748).

Please remember to review our illness reporting and contact-tracing protocols. Full details and resources are available on the Illness Reporting and Contact Tracing webpage.

Returning to campus:

If you have traveled internationally, before you return to campus, contact Tanya Mahan, HR analyst and Valencia’s COVID-19 case manager at COVIDillness@valenciacollege.edu or 407-299-5000, extension 3047. She will provide you with next steps and authorization to return to work on campus.

In addition, please review Valencia’s Phase 2 guidelines prior to returning to campus. Guidelines include taking the Daily Health Assessment, staying home if sick and wearing a mask on campus.
