Update on COVID-19 and Study Abroad
COVID-19, previously known as 2019 novel coronavirus, continues to present a global health crisis. UW–Madison is actively monitoring the situation in collaboration with county, state, and federal agencies. The risk to UW–Madison faculty, staff, and students remains low. Study abroad programs in Italy, South Korea and China have been suspended and the university is advising students to return to their permanent address, not to campus, and self-quarantine for 14 days while monitoring for symptoms. UW–Madison employees and others can find resources, updates, and answers to commonly asked questions on the University Health Services COVID-19 informational website, uhs.wisc.edu/coronavirus-2019.
