Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines will not be traveling abroad in what has become an annual spring trip because of fears over the coronavirus, the school said Monday.
Harbaugh has taken the Wolverines football team on privately funded spring trips to Italy (2017), France (2018) and South Africa over the past three years.
No location for this year’s trip had yet been announced by administrators, who were tasked with making the details for the first time after Harbaugh had done it for the previous three trips.
A viral outbreak that began in China has infected more than 80,000 people globally, and more than 2,600 deaths worldwide have been attributed to the virus. The World Health Organization has named the illness COVID-19, referring to its origin late last year and the coronavirus that causes it.
