Dana-Far­ber, MD An­der­son, MIT im­pose trav­el re­stric­tions amid broad­er ef­forts to con­tain coro­n­avirus dam­age in US

As the new coro­n­avirus spreads to more states in the US out­side Wash­ing­ton, so have the re­ac­tions.

MIT is ban­ning all in­ter­na­tion­al busi­ness trav­els for stu­dents, fac­ul­ty, post­doc and staff for two months, while urg­ing them to weigh whether do­mes­tic trips are es­sen­tial. All in-per­son uni­ver­si­ty-af­fil­i­at­ed events with more than 150 at­ten­dees that will take place be­tween now and May 15 must be post­poned, can­celed or vir­tu­al­ized.
