Beginning January 5, all Chinese air travelers aged two and older must undergo a COVID-19 test in order to enter the United States. No later than two days before their departure from China, Hong Kong, or Macau, they must take the FDA-approved test.
A growing number of study abroad aspirants from China and other nations attend schools and institutions in Savannah such as Savannah College of Art and Design, Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus, and Savannah State University. To ensure the safety of all of their study abroad prospects, the institutions have a Public Health Emergency Response Plan available to anybody interested.
Universities are committed to continuing efforts to stop COVID-19 from spreading by: monitoring the COVID-19 virus’s local spread, effects, and regulations on a regular basis, recommending vaccinations as a reliable method of self and group defense, providing accessible, cost-free campus testing choices for the COVID-19 exam and giving instructors, staff, and students who earn favorable exam results automated support.
Several institutions stated that they regularly monitor exposure on all of their campuses, and that no additional restrictions are currently planned.
It has been demonstrated that pre-departure testing and the requirement to present a negative test result reduce the number of infected study abroad aspirants boarding planes. The CDC added that it will aid in controlling the virus’s transmission while researchers try to recognise and comprehend any potential new strains that might appear. The SARS-CoV-2 virus continues to mutate and spread throughout the world, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, limited testing and case reporting in China as well as little exchange of viral genomic sequence data may postpone the discovery of novel, potentially dangerous variations.
The World Health Organization (WHO) met with China last week to discuss the country’s recent spike in COVID-19 cases, to get more details about the problem, and to offer their expertise and more support.
