International travel:

The CDC recommends Chinese officials have closed transport within and out of Wuhan, including buses, subways, trains, and the airport. AUM strongly advises all students, faculty or staff planning international travel for spring break or the summer, including study abroad opportunities, to closely monitor COVID-2019 alerts and precautions at all layovers and final destinations. Travelers are also encouraged to register for the , a free service provided by the U.S. Department of State that informs U.S. citizens and nationals of safety conditions in destination countries and provides information in the case of natural disasters, civil unrest or other emergencies.
