MCC cannot tell students what to do in their personal time. However, MCC strongly recommends that students avoid nonessential travel outside the U.S., especially to countries with travel health notices from the CDC.

If traveling to other locations abroad, stay current with the latest CDC Travel Health Notices and register your trip with the U.S. Department of State Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) in order to receive timely health and safety updates from the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. Non-US citizen may also sign up for these alerts.
