University business travel remains restricted, and personal travel discouraged. In December, Gov. Hogan issued an emergency order requiring Marylanders to limit all travel to essential purposes only. All Marylanders who do travel outside of Maryland or any individuals who travel to Maryland must either obtain a negative COVID-19 test result or self-quarantine for 10 days. This applies to all states, with the exception of Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Johns Hopkins students, faculty, and staff who must travel can use university COVID testing to fulfill those requirements. 

The state’s travel requirements are in addition to Johns Hopkins’ requirements, which include self-quarantining upon return until a negative test result is received. This semester, we will also be instituting a registration requirement for any travel. Details on how to register will be communicated soon. 

We thank you for your hard work to fulfill the university’s mission of education, research, and service under the difficult conditions posed by the pandemic. We are excited at the opportunity to expand our in-person activity on our campuses, and we ask for your patience and understanding as we all adjust to new practices and procedures to keep each other safe and healthy.
