COVID-19, travel, university 

Today we decided to cut our trip short and head home next week rather than continue on to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and back to Paris as originally planned.

Then, within 15 minutes of each other, I get emails from our chancellor and Engineers Without Borders USA discontinuing travel. So that will clear the schedules of my students as well.

I think I just have one remaining conference that is still up in the air. I'm rather hoping that they offer a remote participation option or, even better, go full virtual. However, I'm guessing that is unlikely.

@drb You are American right. Then you will have to be back before Friday midnight. Trump is closing the border. twitter.com/ajplus/status/1237

@drb Sounds like you could still fly back later via London or Iceland. And you could get a COVID19 test.

Or stay here, we have good health care.

We have a flight out of London next Wednesday. We'll see if we can still get to London by then. Currently in Edinburgh.

@drb The formulation of the policy by IceLandAir is a lot clearer than the one of Trump. Sounds like you would even be fully exempt as US citizen. icelandair.com/blog/travel-ale

Yes, assuming no further changes before then, we should be able to fly. As long as the flight isn't cancelled due to reduced demand.
