STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Some Mississippi State University students are relieved the University is taking precaution to prevent the Coronavirus from appearing on campus.
The University's Health Services Executive Director Cliff Story released a letter on Thursday.
He said the University will not approve travel to countries that have been issued a Level 3 by the CDC, including China and South Korea.
Story also said the University discourages travel to countries that have been issued a Level 2 status, which now includes Japan, Italy and Iran.
Senior MSU student Braedon Kimball said he's not too worried about the Coronavirus, because there have been no reported cases in Mississippi.
Nathan Bickering said he's relieved the University is taking precaution, but this restriction may affect some students who want to travel for Spring Break.
"I would be a little nervous, but at the same time I’d take precaution," he said.
Megan Hanna said she agrees with the University's decision to restrict travel, but also said students should hold themselves accountable.
"Each student needs to take in consideration that they are a part of a larger community," she said.
Story said there are no cases of the COVID-19 at the Mississippi State University or in Mississippi.
