Novel Coronavirus - January 27

UCEAP is suspending its programs in Beijing and Shanghai for spring and summer in 2020.

On January 27, 2020, the US Department of State (DOS) issued a Level 3 Travel Advisory for China: Reconsider Travel. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued their highest warning Level 3 for China: Avoid All Nonessential Travel. UCEAP is required to adhere to UC policy, which mandates suspension of any program located where a DOS travel advisory level 3 or higher and a CDC travel health warning level 3 have been issued.

On January 31, 2020, the DOS raised the China Travel Advisory to Level 4: Do Not Travel. 



UCEAP monitors disease outbreaks worldwide 24/7 through the CDC and World Health Organization, partner universities, UC Study Centers, and host country resources. UCEAP works closely with the University of California Student Health Services and the Office of the President Risk Services to post information regularly.
