17-Mar-2020  UMAP’s Statement on COVID-19

Dear respected UMAP students and member institutions,

In response to the announcement made by WHO on March 12th, 2020, describing the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic, UMAP would like to ask all students to consult with their families and home institutions about whether it is best for them to stay at their host institution or return home. UMAP respects the decisions of our member institutions and students, and asks that students follow the protocols of their home institution and the advice of their families.

UMAP also would like to ask member institutions to support students in following the instructions of the relevant authorities of their country/territory under these circumstances. Please do not hesitate to contact UMAP IS if you have any questions or concerns.
