COVID

From the Call Center to testing and vaccinations, there is a lot of information to keep up with regarding COVID-19 and campus protocols and resources. Here's a wrap up of current campus and COVID-19 information: 

  • Campus COVID-19 Call Center -- Do you or your student have questions or need campus-related resources regarding COVID-19? The Campus COVID-19 Call Center serves the campus community by connecting them to U-M resources and support during the pandemic. The Call Center can be reached at 734-936-7000, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week (holidays excluded).
  • Campus Testing for COVID-19 -- For students, COVID-19 testing is readily available on the Ann Arbor campus at no cost. University testing options have ample capacity, so your students should be able to get tested with ease. U-M is using a multi-tiered testing strategy to help protect our community and slow the spread of the virus on campus, which includes: pre-arrival testing, asymptomatic testing and mandatory testing, symptomatic testing, and departure testing. 
  • ResponsiBLUE -- The University is using a mobile app, called ResponsiBLUE, to keep the university healthy and reduce the spread of COVID-19 by requiring  everyone entering buildings on campus to complete a daily symptom check. Visitors and vendors must use the guest version of ResponsiBLUE whenever they come to campus.
  • Vaccination Update -- Following protocols and guidelines, Michigan Medicine has provided employees age 65 and older, and those defined by the state as frontline essential workers, the ability to sign up for vaccination. Michigan Medicine wasn’t able to schedule additional first-dose vaccination appointments last week due to a change in the state of Michigan’s distribution strategy and the nationwide shortage of available vaccines. For the latest information about the COVID-19 vaccine at U-M, please visit the COVID-19 Vaccine Information and Update page on the Michigan Medicine website.
