Out-of-State Visitors

An Order by the Pennsylvania Department of Health requires anyone who visits from another state to have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the commonwealth or they must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Pennsylvania.

If you reside outside of Pennsylvania, you can visit us virtually or can visit us in-person if you comply with the DOH order by providing a negative COVID test result or quarantining for 14 days in Pennsylvania before coming to campus. Similarly, if you are a Pennsylvanian who has recently traveled out of state, please plan to visit us virtually, provide a negative COVID-19 test or visit us after the completion of your 14-day quarantine.
