Best practices and FAQs for making travel reservations for business travel during this time:
If there is any concern the trip will be canceled it is best to wait until closer to the departure date when purchasing airfare
Purchasing refundable airfare is allowable when approved by a Dean or Major Director (for non academic units). Trip cancellation insurance - it is important to read the fine print to make sure you know what circumstances are covered. For instance, some trip cancellation insurance will not cover cancellation if airfare is purchased after warnings are issued for travel to a particular location.
When insurance vs. refundable airfare, compare the costs to help make the best decision
