Travel Restrictions, Labor Day, Reopening Phase 2.5

 September 7, 2020

Travel Restrictions Updated for Students, Faculty, & Staff
The Duke Travel Policy has been revised through Nov. 24, 2020, to allow undergraduates to petition the COVID-19 committee for travel, include “local” travel within the scope of essential travel criteria, eliminate the mandatory 14-day quarantine upon return or arrival from travel abroad, and allow for conference/workshop/seminar attendance that is required and funded by the terms of a sponsored project. 

Take a Moment to Say ‘Thank You’ This Labor Day
On this Labor Day, take the time to say “thank you” to your staff for their commitment and dedication to helping deliver the best of Duke despite the challenges related to the pandemic. Such a simple action can have positive benefits for you and your staff.  

Governor Moves to Phase 2.5 for Reopening
N.C. Governor Roy Cooper announced last week that North Carolina would move to “Safer at Home: Phase 2.5” of easing COVID-19 restrictions. Phase 2.5 will last through at least October 2. Governor Cooper and N.C. DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen explained that the state has used a modest approach to easing restrictions and that many of the state’s COVID-19 metrics are stabilizing or declining.
