UP COVID-19 Readiness and Resources
All non-essential work travel for University of Providence employees remains prohibited. New employees traveling from another state or country to work at the University of Providence and employees traveling out-of-state on personal matters may be required to self-quarantine for 14 days at home and work remotely if possible and feasible prior to returning to work on campus, through Phase 2. If the Governor of Montana were to move back to Phase 1 of the reopening plan, the 14-day self-quarantine for anyone traveling out-of-state, or coming in from out-of-state will be mandatory.
