Travel Restriction for South Korea

By President’s Office

A community outbreak of the respiratory illness, caused by a novel (new) coronavirus, COVID-19 has continued to spread to multiple countries. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to closely monitor developments and has issued a Warning Level 3, for South Korea. This warning instructs travelers to avoid nonessential travel to South Korea.

Consistent with the CDC recommendation, Michigan Tech is issuing a University-wide travel restriction for the entire country of South Korea. The restriction applies to faculty, staff, and students. If you have essential travel to South Korea scheduled, please contact the Office of General Counsel at 906-487-2318.

At this point in time the CDC lists both China and South Korea as Warning Level 3. The University is still restricting travel to the entire country of China. Previous communication regarding travel restrictions to China was issued on January 31.

The University administration continues to monitor the situation for developments and will update the campus community as necessary. For Michigan-specific information on the coronavirus, please visit the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services webpage.
