While there has been significant media coverage of the 2019-nCoV (novel coronavirus) outbreak in China’s Wuhan Province, the immediate health risk to the general U.S. public is low. However, for travel purposes, China is currently considered a high-risk destination because it is under a Level 3 Centers for Disease Control Travel Advisory.
We will do everything we can to keep our campus healthy and safe. As part of our efforts to ensure the safety of our university community, we require that all international travel be registered at least three weeks in advance via the UNT International Travel Registration Form. Where there is travel to high-risk designations, as is the case with China right now, travel must be approved by the International Risk Oversight Committee, IROC.
