Most of the international students from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s 2019-2020 academic year are from countries with lower daily Covid-19 infection rates than the United States, according to a CU-CitizenAccess analysis.

International students returning to the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus this year will be required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.
