University Postpones Spring Break Trip to Cambodia Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Georgetown University’s Office of Global Education postponed a Centennial Lab’s spring break trip to Cambodia until after the end of the spring semester, due to increasing concerns over the spread of the coronavirus in Asia. 

Students enrolled in “Politics and Performance: Confronting the Past, Shaping the Future,” the affected Centennial Lab, which is a program of courses that focuses on experiential learning, planned to travel to Cambodia over spring break. Following reports that one passenger tested positive for the coronavirus after going on a cruise that disembarked in Cambodia, the OGE decided Feb. 18 to postpone the travel component of the class.
