The NU system, UNO and the Education Abroad office is closely monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 worldwide. We are working in partnership with offices across campuses, including medical staff at Nebraska Medicine to provide timely and useful information. This page is serves as a resource for students and parents. We will update this page as often as possible.
UNO Education Abroad continues to closely monitor all university-sponsored programs. We are issuing weekly updates with program leaders, organizers, and sponsors in additional to having regular phone calls with units sponsoring multiple trips.
At some point you may experience closings of public offices and administration, cancellations or large gatherings, and precautionary measures during travel. We urge students traveling to follow the health and safety guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Prior to traveling, students need to check with airlines regarding any flight cancellations and/or restrictions on flying.
Students, participants, faculty, and staff on university-sponsored travel have Medical and Security insurance through AIG Travel Guard or ISEP. These insurance providers have extensive up-to-date information on their websites and are available 24/7 should you have any concerns.
To access the AIG portal for travel news and worldwide information, go to aig.com/us/travelguardassistance. You will need your AIG policy number to create a profile, if you have not already. You will be able to access current country-specific and health information. If a student is studying abroad through ISEP, please check with ISEP’s insurance information and resources.
For updates and additional information, please monitor the WHO and CDC webpages on COVID-19.
