Update on Coronavirus reports in Northern Italy

Feb 24, 2020 6:02:54 PM

Over the weekend, international news reports and notices from the U.S. Embassy in Rome provided more information about a few cases of Coronavirus occurring in two northern regions of Italy: Lombardy and Veneto. Officials are seeking to contain the cases by restricting travel to and from the affected regions.  CIS Abroad and our University Partners in Italy have taken measures to share these Embassy notifications with all students in Italy.  All students based in Europe are encouraged to avoid traveling to the Northern regions of Italy in question.  CIS Abroad continues to encourage all students to monitor the news and to take the standard precautions to avoid illness. Please see the World Health Organization (WHO) website for extensive information on the virus and tips for staying healthy.
