The Office of the Provost has released an updated travel advisory, which reads as follows:

Exceptions to this Advisory will be rare. A request for approval of regional travel or an exception to this advisory must be approved by the employee’s immediate supervisor, Vice President and Senior Vice President or Provost. Travel to Brookhaven National Lab and to other SBU locations does not require pre-approval. Faculty, staff and students requesting this exception must use the pre-approval form located at:
Travel undertaken without the appropriate pre-approvals will not be reimbursed and other disciplinary actions may apply.
