Travel Advisory
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine recently issued a travel advisory involving several states with high positive testing rates for COVID-19. This list is updated weekly on Wednesdays by the Ohio Governor’s Office. You may visit https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/families-and-individuals/COVID-19-Travel-Advisory/COVID-19-Travel-Advisory to see weekly updates.
 
Due to the Governor’s travel advisory, students from these states must provide documentation of a negative COVID-19 test on arrival to campus. The test must be a diagnostic COVID test. The test should be taken 7-10 days prior to scheduled travel. Antibody test results will not be accepted nor will COVID tests taken more than 10 days prior. Students whose results are not available before scheduled travel should remain in their home state until the test results are available. 
 
To ensure students begin their academic studies on time, virtual coursework will be available to those students whose travel is delayed and/or denied.  Students should consult with their academic advisor to coordinate this option.
If you have any questions and/or concerns, please contact the Health and Wellness Center at 937-376-6134, studenthealthcenter@centralstate.edu, and/or the Dean of Students Terree Stevenson, at 937-376-6493, tstevenson@centralstate.edu.
