The students have been informed that they must depart Florence, Italy, due to the elevated travel warnings by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Department of State. What does this mean?
Kent State University has officially suspended the Florence program for the remainder of the 2020 Spring Semester. All students are instructed to depart from Italy and return to the United States or their home country. Kent State will cover the cost of their return travel and has already started making travel arrangements for students.
