IE UNIVERSITY TRAVEL POLICY REGARDING COVID19

Please take care of your health and protect others. According to WHO, most people who become infected with COVID-19 experience mild illness and recover. The majority recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Older people and those with underlying medical conditions are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
