On October 6, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a statement noting that a health care worker in Spain has been diagnosed with Ebola virus disease (EVD) after treating an infected person who was medically evacuated from Liberia to Madrid. The Learning Abroad Center programs in Spain continue to run without impact.
Learning Abroad Center winter break and spring semester programs are scheduled to be offered as planned, and the Learning Abroad Center will continue to monitor this situation closely.
The Learning Abroad Center is closely monitoring the Ebola outbreak in West Africa in partnership with our parent office, the GPS Alliance. The Learning Abroad Center has no students in or planning to travel to the countries where Ebola has been confirmed (Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria).
We are in close communication with our affiliates and students in the region for summer and fall programs. Currently, all programs continue to operate normally.
