There are 6 comments on How Is Coronavirus Impacting BU Study Abroad and Spring Break Plans?

  1. Can the university give a written protocol to the parents and students on how the university is prepared? I would like to see details. such as medical equipment available to students, how you will set up quaratines, at what point will the university send students home for self quarantines, etc. This is extremely important to know the protocol the university has in place. So that, god forbid, the virus infects the students…we as parents know how and when to react. Should the college have to close down for a month, how will the college reimburse the students/parents or will the monies just be moved to the next semester.

    Please advise.

    1. Thank you for this comment. In fact later today we will be publishing a website with much of this information. Stay tuned and I will share the link here.

  2. How come Japan programs are not cancelled.
    Even though Japan has not closed its schools, I feel BU should still take action to keep their students safe.

  3. Can BU please just tell it’s student whether or not they want us to go on spring break vacations in Europe or not?! Everything BU posts is so abstract! Like “Possibly reconsider travel” what does that even mean? Like tell me if I go to France like I have planned will I be quarantined when I return and not allowed to go to classes? Or should I just go because my risk is low and BU isn’t going to do anything about it when I get back anyway like they are doing now with the kids coming back from Italy. This is just so frustrating!!
