The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has implemented domestic and international travel requirements and restrictions to combat the spread of the new coronavirus strain. 

UNC has requested that students, faculty, and staff traveling to countries and states affected by the coronavirus self-quarantine themselves off-campus for two weeks once they return.

The school is prohibiting university-affiliated travel to countries the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have given Level 3 travel warnings to, including China, Italy, Iran, and South Korea. It's also prohibiting university-paid travel to California, Florida, and Washington, all of which have declared states of emergency related to coronavirus.

UNC-Chapel Hill is following in the footsteps of other universities such as Duke and NC State. The decision comes just days before spring break begins.
