The Michigan Wolverines football team will not be making their annual spring trip this year due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
“The football team will not be taking an international trip this spring due to the health concerns around the world, most notably coronavirus,” UM football spokesman Dave Ablaut said today.
Though the location of their spring trip hasn’t been revealed, it sounds as though the team is taking the prudent course and is electing to be safe rather than sorry.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the virus has been found in 32 locations (including the United States) since being discovered in China last December, and has already claimed a reported 2,500 lives so far.
In the past, the Wolverines have traveled to destinations such as South Africa, Rome, and Paris.
