YNHHS now allowing domestic, business-related travel 

YNHHS recently lifted its COVID-related moratorium on business-related travel (domestic only), provided employees:

  • Are fully vaccinated before travel (i.e., two or more weeks since receiving all necessary vaccine doses)
  • Receive approval from their senior vice president before travel
  • Do not have any COVID symptoms before travel; adhere to the CDC’s safe travel guidelines while away; and comply with any YNHHS return-to-work protocols in effect at the time of travel.

Currently, fully-vaccinated employees who are traveling domestically, adhere to safe travel guidelines, have had no known exposure to confirmed or suspected COVID-positive individuals during travel, and remain asymptomatic do not need COVID testing before returning to work.  

For more information, visit the travel section on the intranet (in network only).
