COLLEGE STATION, TX — Texas A&M is canceling University-sponsored travel outside the U.S. through May 1.

International travel is canceled between March 16, 2020 – May 1, 2020.

Students, faculty and staff currently traveling abroad may continue to follow the same guidelines issued on March 6.

The University says given the fluid nature of the situation, the university will make decisions about travel beyond May 1 in the weeks to come.

Any mission-critical or health-critical exceptions must be approved in advance by senior administrators.

Additionally, the university strongly encourages faculty, staff and students to refrain from all international travel during this time.

Texas A&M say there have been no cases of coronavirus reported at Texas A&M and no students who are presenting any symptoms, including those few individuals who returned from CDC Level 2 and 3 countries.
