Students traveling for spring break to states with a coronavirus state of emergency may be asked to self-quarantine off campus for 14 days when they return to UNC.
Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz announced this and other coronavirus-related updates in a campus-wide email Wednesday night. The email also said students, faculty and staff returning from certain countries, including Italy and South Korea, will be asked to self-quarantine off campus for 14 days.
The University is asking students to accurately self-report their travel to these areas — and if they don't, they could be subject to action by the Office of Student Conduct, according to an email from University Media Relations.
Students who travel to these areas on non-University-affiliated trips will not receive University-excused absences for the 14 days they are in quarantine, the email said.
Here's what you need to know about the University's policy before you travel for spring break:
Where am I not supposed to travel?
The University has halted UNC-affiliated travel to countries with Level 3 (Avoid Nonessential Travel) advisories from the State Department and Centers for Disease Control — China, South Korea, Iran and Italy.
UNC has travel restrictions on Japan, which has a Level 2 (Practice Enhanced Precautions) advisory.
University-affiliated travel to states that have declared a coronavirus state of emergency is restricted, Guskiewcz said in the Wednesday email.
