Yale University closely monitors travel-related developments around the globe as they evolve, including the novel coronavirus (abbreviated 2019-nCoV) outbreak that is centered in China.
In January 2020, the U.S. Department of State issued a “Level 4: Do Not Travel” warning for China. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has classified China as “Level 3: Avoid Nonessential Travel.”
