The COVID-19 Guidelines for Campus Facilities document provides minimum public health standards and requirements for spaces within buildings on the U-M Ann Arbor campus.
All employees on-site are no longer required to take SARS-Cov2 and COVID-19 Training, however it is recommended by MyLINC.
If you are fully vaccinated and would like an exemption to weekly testing for Spring/Summer 2021 please report via Wolverine Access or call the COVID Call Center at 734-936-7000 for more information.
All graduate and professional students who live on or come to campus for the Spring and/or Summer 2021 terms:
The U-M ResponsiBLUE app will be the primary mechanism for students to verify compliance with this policy.
Safety and Well-Being: The safety and well-being of everyone in our community is the leading priority. We want to be especially aware of the people who are at highest risk.
Public Health Informed: Our plans will be aligned and consistent with public health guidance and will follow local, state and federal safety requirements. We will also partner with central administration, and their guidance will drive many decisions.
Flexibility: We will be nimble in our planning and be ready to adapt to changing circumstances. We may have to return to campus in phases, and a key component of planning will be reversibility in the event of another COVID-19 spike.
Transparency and Collaboration: The dean’s office will involve units and departments as partners in decision-making processes whenever possible, and foster collaboration between units and employees with shared workplaces.
*All plans are subject to future U-M and State of Michigan regulations. Adjustments may be made based on unforeseen impacts from the pandemic.
Starting July 7, canopy reservation availability is expanding. Campus canopy locations are available for reservation Monday through Friday 8am - 6pm (4 hour maximum) for U-M departmental meetings and student organization meetings. Units can submit reservations for these hours starting July 1. Currently, the last day a reservation will be accepted for is August 13. Read the guidelines, see the canopy locations, and and submit a reservation.
Our collective safety requires we all do our part by practicing robust personal hygiene habits, wearing a face mask when required and staying home when sick. The core responsibilities keep you safe and keep others safe, too.
It is important for all of us to stay vigilant and:
Dear University of Michigan Community:
In August 2020 we communicated and implemented the COVID-related Addendum to the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities (SSRR). The COVID Addendum was implemented with an initial time limitation lasting through the conclusion of the Winter term 2021 with the potential for review and renewal beyond that period. In consultation with student leadership, there is a shared perspective that the requirements set forth in the Addendum should remain through Summer 2021. Our community has come a long way in the preceding months, however, as we all know, the threat of COVID-19 still exists. In consultation with student leadership and campus stakeholders as outlined in the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities, we will use the summer to consider the necessity of and updates to the Addendum in preparation for the 2021-22 academic year and any shifting COVID-19 public health considerations as we approach the Fall semester.
Thank you for your steadfast vigilance and support of our University of Michigan community. Collectively we have upheld our commitment to our core values and invested deeply in our own wellness and the wellness of others as we have lived into our University of Michigan Wolverine Culture of Care.
