All travel has risk related to COVID-19, from manageable (masks, testing, social distancing) to serious challenges (quarantines, lockdowns, travel disruptions, anxiety) to asymptomatic and symptomatic infection. The university is reviewing partner programs and locations to identify the best opportunities for Illinois students and providing relevant information to students. However, despite Illinois and partner efforts, those risks will remain as COVID-19’s trajectory evolves. Consequently, each student must carefully and personally evaluate program and location information (testing, quarantine, accommodations, mitigation measures, infection response, and program support) to determine their preparedness and comfort level. We encourage students to make a decision that best balances their comfort levels, wellbeing, and academic plans.
