BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Louisiana State University has canceled scheduled programs for study abroad amid concerns about the new coronavirus.

The university says they are under a 14-day self-quarantine.

Students in countries not under such advisories are continuing their studies. But future such programs are canceled until Aug. 17. And, international travel by LSU faculty and staff is restricted.
