Travel: While the government has not provided any directives in this regard, university faculty, staff, and students may be advised to postpone or avoid discretionary professional or personal travel to countries with high levels of confirmed infections, i.e., China, South Korea, Italy, Japan and Iran. In case, the travel cannot be avoided, members of the university communities may kindly be requested to inform the focal point in advance of the travel, and register a cell number so that future information and alerts can be shared expeditiously. Travelers should also be advised to keep their cell phones fully charged and operational, and to check emails and messages every day. Travelers may also be advised to keep a full supply of their essential medicines, in case travel gets interrupted or delayed.

About Novel Corona Virus:
An outbreak of a novel corona virus (2019-nCoV) was first reported from Wuhan, China, on 31 December 2019. With the rapidly evolving epidemiological situation, the WHO has now declared the outbreak to be a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC). Early on, most patients most likely had animal-to-person spread, but now indications are that person-to-person spread is occurring. Most often, spread from person-to-person happens among close contacts (about 6 feet), mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It's currently unclear if a person can get 2019-nCoV by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. Typically, with most respiratory viruses, people are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest). With 2019-nCoV, however, there have been reports of spread from an infected asymptomatic patient.
