Officials with the University of Tennessee at Martin sent an email to their student body Wednesday morning confirming that university out-of-state travel is suspended.
UT Martin Chancellor Dr. Keith Carver reassured students in the email that no cases are confirmed in the area, but that precautions need to be taken.
The email reported that non-essential travel is cancelled. The Provost or Vice Chancellors can approve university travel under certain circumstances.
International travel was cancelled Thursday, Mar. 5.
