This paper is concerned with traveling wave solutions of a nonlocal dispersal SIR epidemic model with standard incidence. We show that our results on existence and nonexistence of traveling wave solutions are determined by the basic reproduction number of the corresponding ordinary differential model and the minimal wave speed. These threshold dynamics are proved by constructing an invariant cone and applying Schauder's fixed point theorem on this cone and the Laplace transform. The main difficulties are the lack of an occurrence of a regularizing effect and the loss of the order-preserving property of this model.
