On Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a Level 3 Travel Warning for all of China. The CDC recommends that travelers avoid all nonessential travel to China.
Based on this warning, all students will be prohibited from university-sponsored travel to China. The university recommends that faculty and staff postpone any nonessential travel to China until this travel warning is lifted.
University officials remain in contact with local public health officials; there is no known connection between affected individuals and USC.
