COVID-19 Policy Information for Faculty and Staff

The following policies apply to Faculty and Staff:

  • Employees must stay home if they are sick or show symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Each day, faculty, staff, students, and visitors of our campus community who will enter campus buildings are expected to check themselves for COVID-19 symptoms by answering a brief set of questions on the ResponsiBLUE app or website.
  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated and self-report their status to the university are generally exempt from indoor masking requirements; however, such individuals must still wear a mask during class sessions, on U-M buses, or in healthcare areas in patient settings.
  • U-M requires all faculty, staff, students, and visitors who are not fully vaccinated or decline to self-report their status to wear a face covering that covers the mouth and nose when indoors on U-M property in accordance with the U-M Face Covering Policy for COVID-19. Instances where a face covering is not required indoors (in addition to fully-vaccinated status that is voluntarily reported as outlined above) include when you are:
    • alone in a single enclosed private office with your door closed;
    • eating or drinking;
    • granted a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA);
    • and other specific circumstances as described in the U-M Face Covering Policy for COVID-19
  • Requests for exemptions or accommodations related to the U-M Face Covering Policy for COVID-19 should be directed at the Office for Institutional Equity (OIE). Requests for any other accommodations associated with a medical condition should be coordinated through Work Connections.
  • Faculty, staff, students, and visitors who are not fully vaccinated are still recommended, although not required, to continue to distance 6 feet from others.
  • Employees concerned about the safety of their work space should speak with their supervisors.
    • University guidance allows a supervisor to request that an employee who reports to them display their verified vaccination status in ResponsiBLUE if not wearing a mask in an indoor setting.
    • Please contact Candace Terhune and Ryan Bankston via ssw.diradmin@umich.edu for questions or clarifications to the current SSW and University COVID-19 policies.
