From the Associated Press — The University of Michigan has canceled undergraduate study abroad programs for the school’s upcoming winter term due to concerns over the COVID-19 virus, continuing travel restrictions and planning time needed for students. Associate Vice Provost and Director of Global Engagement Amy Conger says Monday that nearly every country is under a University of Michigan travel restriction. Conger adds that it’s difficult to do an accurate risk assessment of COVID-19 conditions, predict entry and exit bans, and confirm the availability of quarantine housing and other safety measures at all of the study sites. Conger said it can take nine months to a year to plan a program.
