ASU Warns Against Some Spring Break Travel In Wake Of Virus


Arizona State University students and staff are being urged to avoid travel to countries with a high number of coronavirus cases over spring break. 

University President Michael Crow released a statement Thursday, just a few days before the start of the school's week-long hiatus.

Crow reiterated that U.S. health officials consider China, Iran, Italy and South Korea high-risk areas for COVID-19.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also deems Japan and Hong Kong as a risk.

Crow says anyone who travels from those countries must undergo a two-week self-quarantine at home or at an off-campus residence.

However, nobody is officially enforcing such quarantines.
