Coronavirus Travel Advisory

Travel Update: February 29, 2020

China, South Korea, and Italy are listed at Level 3 (Reconsider Travel) by the Department of State and Level 3 (Avoid Non-Essential Travel) by the Centers for Disease Control due to presence of the coronavirus COVID-19. Miami is restricting all travel to these countries.

Miami has already cancelled all of its programs in China for the foreseeable future, and urges students currently in South Korea and Italy to return to the USA as soon as possible to complete their studies. Miami is ready to support you in this transition.

The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving. We encourage members of the Miami community to strongly consider deferring non-essential international travel during spring break. Miami will make decisions about its summer study abroad programs in affected areas in the near future on a case-by-case basis.

Travelers, please be sure you do the following:

  • Monitor travel advisories daily, including potential restrictions on border crossings.
  • Countries you visit may decide to implement travel restrictions with very little notice, impacting your ability to return to campus.
  • Airlines may cancel/limit flights in or out of a country or region.
  • Additional quarantine measures may be applied by the U.S. and other countries. International SOS has compiled a comprehensive list of these restrictions.
  • Re-entry to the U.S. could be restricted. Butler County may impose a 14-day self-isolation requirement.
