The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus outbreak originating from Wuhan, China. We take concerns about the virus seriously and are following Columbia’s guidelines and federal restrictions regarding international travel.
For more information about steps being taken to address the situation, please read the University’s COVID-19 Guidance for the Columbia Community. You can also watch the The Coronavirus Epidemic in China and Beyond, where a panel discussion and extended Q&A was held at the Institute on February 24, 2020.
We will continue to monitor the situation and stand by for any further instructions from the university.
