*Published January 29, 2020

This letter was published and shared on January 29, 2020. This is a rapidly changing situation and Salem State University is closely monitoring developments of the Coronavirus outbreak. Learn the latest updates.

Dear Campus Community,

As our campus monitors developments surrounding the coronavirus, the university has placed a moratorium on travel to China until further notice. If you have upcoming official university travel planned, please connect with the Center for International Education.

The safety of our students, faculty and staff is Salem State’s top priority and given the number of unknowns related to this virus, such caution is warranted. While personal travel to China not affiliated with the university is the decision of each individual, we strongly recommend refraining from such travel at this time.  

Please refer to information shared in Monday’s email regarding precautions and protocols if you have flu-like symptoms. The most up-to-date information about this new coronavirus is available from the CDC.

Salem State University is working with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and monitoring this situation closely, and we will continue to keep the university informed as developments arise. 

Thank you,

John D. Keenan
