All out-of-state events related to the Madison Metropolitan School District are being canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, a district spokesperson confirms.

"The safety of our students is always going to be a priority," Tim LeMonds, MMSD spokesperson said.

Canceled events include out-of-state conferences, meetings and field trips.

MMSD spokesperson Tim LeMonds tells NBC15 that the travel restriction does not affect personal travel at this time.

"If we should see any uptick in risk, we'll be collaborating together as school districts and local and state agencies to respond appropriately," he said.

On Tuesday, Dane County reported its second confirmed case of the coronavirus, becoming Wisconsin's third confirmed case.

Health officials say the individual was exposed to the deadly virus while traveling within the United States. The person is currently isolated at their home.
