Dear Prospective and Current Edmonds College Study Abroad participants,
The U.S. Department of State has issued a Global Level 3 Health Advisory- Do Not Travel statement, advising “...U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact
of COVID-19. In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S.
citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the
United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.
U.S. citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel.
Our study abroad office at Edmonds College is continually reviewing this new information
and will support our partner institutions in their decisions related to these guidelines.
As of this writing, Edmonds College has suspended programs to China, based on CDC
and U.S. State Department elevated travel advisories related to COVID-19.
After careful consideration, and in the hopes that absence of specific change in conditions
in the other eight countries in which we offer programs, we will continue to offer
programs as planned.
Student health and safety remain our very highest priority, and Edmonds College has
successfully supported students for over 25 years through numerous events of concern.
Here is Edmonds College’s key information about COVID-19, including prevention guidelines. Our study abroad-based decisions are based on a
combination of strategic decisions for student safety in line with the WHO and CDC updates.
Study Abroad appointments now offer conference call options which can be made after
a calendar appointment is clicked. Please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
You can expect to hear from us as new updates are made, and we encourage you to practice
the health measures advised.
Stay informed. Stay healthy!
Study Abroad Team
