Schools, Universities Take Action to Prepare for Coronavirus – NBC Connecticut

Schools and universities are taking precautions and canceling international trips as concerns about novel coronavirus grow.

Those changes are being made out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to keep the school community safe.

The 17 state colleges and universities have been directed to immediately suspend or cancel institutionally-sponsored travel to several countries due to concerns about coronavirus.

“I was bummed for sure. It was something we were looking forward to for a long time,” said CCSI senior Sarah Wilson.

Wilson, who is an intern at NBC Connecticut, was among a group of students who learned their upcoming study abroad trip to Italy was being canceled because of coronavirus concerns.

“I understand the precautions they’re taking. I do. It was just hard to hear because we’re going to different parts where the virus was said not to have spread. But I do understand it’s growing so fast that it can change at any time,” Wilson said.
