The Canadian government has issued an advisory to avoid all non-essential travel to China and to avoid all travel to China’s Hubei province due to the outbreak of a novel coronavirus.
For this reason, Laurier is cancelling all university-sanctioned travel to China for staff, faculty, undergraduate and graduate students until further notice. This includes exchange, research activities, research placements, field courses, conference travel, university business travel, or any other travel that has been approved, authorized or supported by a Wilfrid Laurier University unit, department, staff or faculty member.
For personal travel, the university encourages all members of the Laurier community to follow the Government of Canada travel advisories and closely monitor the situation.
If students are unable to return to the university as a result of the travel restrictions in other countries, undergraduate students should contact academic advising in the faculty in which they are registered for appropriate support and counsel. Graduate students should contact their program advisor. Contact information is available on Laurier’s Academic Advising webpage.
