Travel update regarding Europe

This announcement was emailed to students, faculty and staff on March 12 by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has raised its travel advisory for Europe to “Level 3, Avoid Non-essential Travel” because of widespread sustained transmission of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).  

This is a reminder that all students, faculty or staff returning from countries with Level 2 and 3 travel health notices or from a cruise should not return to campus without first completing a 14-day self-isolation period without developing symptoms of COVID-19. CDC instructions for self-isolation and symptom monitoring can be found here.

All students, faculty or staff returning from travel abroad or areas in the United States with widespread community transmission (more than 50 cases) should complete a Travel Reporting Form so that the university can provide guidance regarding appropriate health care and other decisions.

Wake Forest will continue to communicate updates about other issues related to COVID-19.  See the COVID-19 website for the latest information.
