Suspension of Non-Essential Travel through May 15, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

To protect our students and employees against the spread of the Coronavirus, all non-essential business travel by MCCCD employees, students, and Governing Board members to any location with active community transmission of COVID-19 is suspended through May 15, 2020. CDC information for the United States

In addition, we strongly advise all employees, Governing Board members, and students to suspend any non-essential business travel through May 15, 2020, regardless of the status of community transmission of COVID 19 at the destination.

Per the Travel Administrative Regulation, if travel arrangements need to be cancelled outside of the traveler’s control (i.e., cancellation of conference or event, etc.), the traveler must first seek refunds for any costs paid and MCCCD will cover the transactions that cannot be refunded. If a traveler decides to cancel scheduled travel activities due to status changes of COVID-19, refunds must first be sought and MCCCD will cover the cost of items that cannot be refunded. Please work with your Fiscal Office as needed.

Thank you.

Steven
