Additional Information

The Provost Office in consultation with the International Travel Oversight Committee determines the risk level of a location using a variety of sources, including: US Department of State Travel Advisories, CDC Travel Notices, CDC COVID-19 risk levels, other non-U.S. government advisories, and U-M’s assistance provider’s risk ratings. Countries are assessed at least once a month though usually more frequently.
