Notre Dame ending overseas program due to travel advisory by CDC

NOTRE DAME, Ind. – On February 28 officials at Notre Dame ended all programming at the Rome Global Gateway for the remainder of the semester.

The decision was prompted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention raising the advisory against non-essential travel for Italy to Warning Level 3.

Currently there are 106 Notre Dame students studying abroad in Rome who will be flown back to the United States as soon as possible.

Due to the seriousness of the coronavirus, returning to the U.S. will require a 14 day quarantine and then clearance from a physician.

It is believed by Notre Dame faculty and staff that all students will still be able to complete their academic requirements as planned for the semester.
