Update to CDC Guidance for Travelers from China
February 5, 2020
Following updated guidance from the CDC, travelers from China should self-isolate and monitor their health for 14 days following their departure from China. Travelers who develop a fever, cough or have difficulty breathing should call their primary care physician or the Philadelphia Public Health department before going to a doctor's office or emergency room for care.
Drexel travelers should also be aware that there are significant entry restrictions in place for many countries, including the United States, for any travelers arriving from China. This includes potential restrictions on US citizens for entry to the US. Travelers to international destinations who have been in China in the 15 days prior to travel should check with their airlines about any restrictions for entry into their destination country.
