Covid 19

University Sponsored Travel

The COVID-19 Omicron variant has led some countries, including Canada, to implement new travel restrictions. McGill is not cancelling University-sponsored travel at this time, however we may be required to do so should the situation change/worsen. Given this, those planning on travelling abroad over the coming months may wish to reconsider, and are urged to fully evaluate the potential safety, financial and academic risks involved.

Please see the Guidelines for travel during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic travel below for more details.
