Dear Parents and Families,
Our campus sprang back to life this week with our students’ arrival in Ann Arbor and the start of the winter term. The beginning of a new term often brings a mixture of emotions for our students, as they find their way to new classrooms and reconnect with friends—and during the pandemic, it also brings up questions related to COVID-19.
Earlier today, your student received this emailed update, which included important information on the increase in COVID-19 cases in the state, region and on campus, the current status of our quarantine and isolation housing, the strong response to our COVID-19 booster requirement, and testing availability.
Additionally, Student Life emailed your Wolverine yesterday with information on what to do after a positive test specific to living on or off campus, including the need to report results.
Your Wolverine should get a booster as soon as they are eligible and upload their information using the form in Wolverine Access as soon as possible. Several on-campus, walk-in clinics are available for your student.
Our Wolverines have shown an incredible response to getting tested, receiving their COVID-19 booster, and following other public health safety measures to help our campus continue a robust residential experience into the winter term.
U-M continues to work collaboratively with campus health experts and academic leaders to advance our mission safely, monitor COVID-19 locally and beyond, and respond as conditions change. Thank you for your continued support as we navigate these unprecedented times together.
