About to land in Seattle for a layover
After flying over 8,000 miles this month, I developed our current travel policy during the pandemic.
Whatever variant may lie ahead, we believe it’s time to develop a responsible plan to visit our customers and get staff together.
Our travel policy will likely evolve over time, but as of today, it’s a meaningful demonstration to our customers and co-workers that we take this seriously.
I’m hoping our customers will find this post useful, as the need for HIPAA compliant email is not going to dissipate.
We developed our policy with inspiration from Salesforce.
Travel Policy during Covid
Visiting Tony Cox, CIO of Henderson Behavioral Health, in Florida
Our current travel policy during the pandemic is boiled down to a simple if-then statement.
You are visiting a customer or flying to get together with co-workers
You must be fully vaccinated and you must test ‘negative’ for Covid 72 hours (or less) from your flight’s departure.

Q: What if I test ‘positive’ for Covid?
A: Report it your manager. Do not travel.
Q: What if I test ‘negative’ for Covid?
A: For now, no need to report it. Take a screenshot of your ‘negative’ test result instead.
Q: Does fully vaccinated mean two doses + a booster shot?
A: No. For now, fully vaccinated means either two doses of Moderna or Pfizer or a single shot of J&J.
