Travel Updates

May 22, 2020

As we enter Summer Semester, the college’s goal is to minimize future spread of the COVID-19 virus and to consolidate and minimize the use of space to facilitate keeping the campuses clean. Gateway will continue to operate in a primarily virtual environment throughout the Summer Semester.  All international and out-of-state student and staff travel remains suspended during this time.

With the extension Governor Tony Evers and the Department of Health Services Safer at Home order, all Gateway Technical College facilities will remain closed until May 26, 2020. All international and out-of-state student and staff travel remains suspended during this time.

March 13, 2020

As part of our ongoing efforts to protect our students and staff from coronavirus (COVID-19), we’ve followed the recommendations of public health care professionals in creating a travel policy.

All international and out-of-state student and staff travel through April 30 is canceled. There will also be a delay in making and/or purchasing travel arrangements (flights, hotels, conference registrations, etc.) for study abroad or out-of-state travel to occur after April 30 until further notice or approval by Gateway Technical College Executive President/Provost Zina Haywood. This short-term suspension is a precautionary measure in response to the dynamic nature and accelerating pace of the novel coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).

We will keep everyone updated on a regular basis and decisions for travel beyond April 30 will be made no later than April 1.

We strongly encourage everyone in our community to reconsider non-essential personal travel outside of the state of Wisconsin. As the spread of COVID-19 escalates, you face a higher level of risk of infection and/or the possibility of self-quarantine upon your return.

We are asking any students or staff who personally travel internationally or outside the state of Wisconsin (non-Gateway sponsored travel) to self-screen using methods recommended by state and local public health care professionals.

Self-screening information and other valuable health care information on the virus – including ways you can help reduce the risk of contracting it – can be found at the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
