UW-Madison suspends 2 exchange programs in wake of virus

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The University of Wisconsin-Madison has suspended study-abroad programs in South Korea and China amid concerns about the coronavirus.

School officials said Wednesday that they had suspended the South Korea program.

The move affects five students enrolled in exchange programs at two South Korean universities this spring. They will be allowed to return to the United States.

A university spokesman said he didn't know their individual destinations.

The university suspended its exchange program with China in January, preventing seven students from traveling there.
