Update: Travel To China

Jan. 31, 2020

To the UM Community:

Please be aware that the U.S. State Department has raised its Travel Advisory for China to Level 4: Do Not Travel do to the coronavirus outbreak.

For the health and safety of students, faculty and staff, the Montana University System has prohibited all MUS-sponsored or affiliated travel to China until further notice. Please be aware that any travel expenses incurred en route to and from China or in China while the MUS travel ban is in effect will not be covered or reimbursed by the MUS. 

The travel ban is for China only and does not apply to trips to other countries.

The university system is committed to protecting students, faculty and staff across our campus communities and is closely monitoring the situation in cooperation with state and county health officials. There are no known cases of 2019-nCoV infection in Montana, and the CDC states that the current risk to the American public of becoming infected is low.

We will provide updates as new information becomes available.
