April 30, 2009

With the federal government recommending Canadians postpone non-essential travel to Mexico in light of the outbreak of H1N1 influenza, or swine flu, Canadian post-secondary institutions are beginning to prohibit any academic-related travel to the country. uWaterloo, MUN, WLU, and uCalgary have issued such advisories. Université Laval, which issued a moratorium on travel to Mexico earlier this week, is now asking 6 students and one professor to return from the country as a precautionary measure to prevent them from contracting or spreading the virus.
