Citadel Cadets abroad ordered home, as President ratchets up travel bans

UPDATED: 3/12/2020

The 23 cadets and students studying abroad that were contacted by The Citadel and asked to return to their homes in the U.S. won't be affected by the recent new travel ban put in place by President Trump, starting Friday. That group includes 16 cadets at The American College of Greece (TACG) which confirmed that a student there (not from The Citadel) has tested positive for COVID-19. TACG and health officials are working to determine any possible exposures, and working on arrangements to assist in the departure of the cadets. All will be able to complete their coursework online.

The President clarified post oval office address:

'New order would not bar all travelers from Europe, just foreign nationals traveling from Europe to the U.S. The order also doesn't prohibit the travel of legal permanent residents and the immediate family members of U.S. citizens.'

Here's a podcast that includes Lt. Col. John Dorrian of Citadel Public Affairs:

Gen. Walters advised the entire corp, as a precaution, to take all of their books, laptops and other items needed to study from home with them should conditions in the area escalate, or in case they encounter travel restrictions while attempting to return to campus after the break. At this time, cadets are expected to report back to campus on Sunday, March 22, but as Walter’s advised, they should monitor their college emails for updates or notifications.

The Maryland Department of Health screened thousands of employees of the hotel where CPAC was held. To date, no additional cases have been found, and the Maryland Department of Health has not implemented any restrictions for those employees.

'Currently, we have no reports of additional CPAC attendees, participants or staff testing positive for coronavirus.'

The Citadel's public affairs staff added, 'at this time no one at The Citadel is showing symptoms of COVID-19 or being tested for symptoms, and there are no cases of COVID-19 on campus.'

'We are actively monitoring the dynamic situation presented by COVID-19 and are making decisions with guidance from liaisons at S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control and the Centers for Disease Control, among other resources.'

To keep everyone fully apprised and because spring furlough begins Friday, Citadel President, Gen. Glenn Walters, speaks the Corps at 1 p.m. in McAllister Field House Tuesday. All members of the campus community were invited to attend.

This mission is personaI for me. I was just 8 yrs old when I was diagnosed with this terrible disease that impacted my entire family. My treatment was three long years. Although I am only 15 yrs old, I have decided to give back by raising critical dollars in honor of patients just like me an especially to our honored heros who are currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer.
