Lehigh announced that international travel and study abroad to countries with designations by the State Department level four or a CDC alert level three warning will not be approved for next semester.

Most countries in the world fall into one of these categories, leaving all but one in-person study abroad program canceled for Lehigh students this spring. The various warnings by the U.S. government indicate there should be no non-essential travel to these countries as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
