Following expert guidance and as a preventative measure designed to limit exposure to locations with community spread of COVID-19, we have also made the decision to cancel all school-sponsored domestic travel with a departure date on or before March 30. This cancellation applies to all travel, regardless of travel method and includes out-of-state athletic activities. We have also cancelled all school-sponsored international travel through the end of April; this includes all international trips with a departure date on or before Thursday, April 30.
Because this situation is progressing rapidly, this cancellation includes all countries regardless of whether they are on the CDC’s list of high-risk locations. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices
