RWU Study Abroad Program Status Changes

  • RWU has suspended study abroad program operations in all CDC-declared Level 3 countries.  These include: China, South Korea and Italy.
  • Out of an abundance of caution, ​RWU has suspended all Spring Break international travel programs.

It is critical to note that ALL STUDENTS returning from a CDC-designated Level 3 country, like Italy, must follow the following guidelines: 

  • We ask that you self-quarantine at your home for a minimum of 14 days. You should avoid direct contact with the general public and especially with the RWU campus community during this time.
  • Monitor your health during this time.  Be watchful for the following COVID-19 symptoms:
    •   Fever, cough, respiratory difficulty, general flu- like symptoms   
  • If you do exhibit ​any symptoms please contact your Primary Care Physician for guidance on how to seek medical treatment.  It is not recommended to visit your doctor or emergency room if you suspect a COVID-19 infection.
