The U.S. Department of State has issued a Level 4 travel advisory for China advising U.S. citizens not to travel to China at this time. In light of this advisory, and the previously issued CDC Level 3 travel warning (on 1/27) to avoid all nonessential travel to China, all USC students will continue to be prohibited from university-sponsored travel to China. The university strongly advises that faculty and staff 1) postpone any nonessential travel to China until these travel warnings are lifted, and 2) contact the Office of Strategic and Global Initiatives at 213-740-2852.
(Note: Starting on Feb. 28, USC has implemented a standalone website to make it easier to get updates about current university policy and activity regarding COVID-19. Visit the website, www.usc.edu/coronavirus/, for the latest information.)
No cases have affected the USC community. All classes and university businesses are continuing as normally scheduled. If anything changes, the campus community would be notified immediately.
