UW Medicine is extending its restrictions on all work-related travel for all employees until May 1, 2020. These restrictions were first announced by Dr. Paul Ramsey, CEO, UW Medicine, on March 8, 2020, and they include all travel for conferences and meetings related to professional membership societies and associations as well as meetings or gatherings related to grants.

The extension of travel restrictions is aligned with Gov. Jay Inslee’s Stay Home – Stay Healthy proclamation and the University of Washington’s restrictions on international travel for all faculty, staff and students.

In addition, UW Medicine encourages employees to avoid nonessential personal travel during this global pandemic. As we prepare for a possible surge of patients locally and see the spread of COVID-19 across the country and world, social distancing remains our best strategy to protect ourselves and our community.
