Health Update for Students returning from Study Abroad in Italy (Feb. 28, 2020)
The University continues to closely monitor the evolving situation relative to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Our students who were participating in study abroad programs in Italy—where COVID-19 has rapidly spread—are returning home. Upon return to the United States, students have been instructed by the University not to return to Villanova’s campus for 14 days. During this time, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization’s recommendations, students will monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 and take their temperature twice a day.
The Student Health Center has received questions regarding coronavirus and what the quarantine period means. Below are details about coronavirus symptoms and quarantine information:
Villanova University’s emergency preparedness team continues to meet regularly and review the latest information about the virus and how it could potentially affect our campus community. We will continue to communicate with our students, their families, faculty and staff regarding this changing situation.
