Dear U-M undergraduate students,
We are excited to welcome you back after the break - whether you’ll be participating this winter term on campus or from afar. As you plan your return to campus or Ann Arbor for another academic term, there are several public health best practices and university expectations to make you aware of for a safe and healthy term.
October 29, 2020
At the beginning of the Fall semester, we provided an overview of our community’s shared behavior expectations in the context of COVID-19. We continue to provide ongoing outreach and education related to these expectations and we thank the vast majority of students for their commitment to safety as demonstrated by their compliance with our Culture of Care.
Dear U-M Student,
First, thank you for your ongoing efforts to keep you and your fellow Wolverines safe and healthy.
In the past two weeks since the Washtenaw County Health Department’s “Stay In Place” order for undergraduate students was implemented, we have seen evidence that the spread of COVID-19 and the number of cases among U-M students has declined significantly, especially for on-campus locations. For example prior to the Stay In Place order, more than 60% of Washtenaw County cases were associated with U-M students, and now U-M student cases represent about a third of local COVID-19 cases at 33%.
Dear U-M Student,
With the recent Stay in Place Order for undergraduate students and the shift to move most in-person classes to remote instruction for the remainder of the semester, we understand that some of you may change your plans for remaining in Ann Arbor.
While there is no public health or university requirement for students to leave campus at this time, we would like to provide information to help you prepare for returning to your permanent residence, whenever that may be.
If you plan to return to your permanent residence, here are important things to do:
The University of Michigan has installed 13 outdoor canopies around campus to provide individual students additional space for studying, rest, and eating between classes.
