The University of Iowa is canceling spring 2021 study abroad and university-sponsored travel outside of the United States for students. 

The UI previously canceled international travel through Jan. 15. According to a university-wide email sent Wednesday, President Bruce Harreld may approve faculty departures for international travel on a case-by-case basis after Jan. 15. 

International travel has been on hold at the university since campus first closed in March. 

In the latest COVID-19 campus update, the UI reported five new self-reported student cases and two new employee cases of COVID-19 since Oct. 19. To date, 2,091 students and 77 UI employees have self-reported positive COVID-19 cases.
