Non-Essential Travel to Mississippi

As you may have already read in the local media, in reaction to certain legislation enacted by the state of Mississippi, Executive Order 156 bans all non-essential travel to Mississippi. This travel ban applies to all travel funded by the University, state or Research Foundation, included travel funded from state IFR or Research Foundation multiple sponsor accounts or by another New York State agency. Travel through an airport located in Mississippi to a final destination outside Mississippi is allowed so long as there is no overnight layover in Mississippi. However, when possible and cost effective, travelers should avoid making airline connections through a Mississippi airport.

In order to comply with this Executive Order, please do not schedule, make deposits, or incur any expenses related to travel to  Mississippi at this time.
