NERS COVID OPERATIONS PLAN
As of May 2023, the University of Michigan has transitioned to a new phase of pandemic response. While health experts continue to monitor COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, most measures related to the pandemic have been rolled back at this time. See the most recent message to the campus community from U-M leadership. Below you can find additional resources and up to date policies and procedures.
The University of Michigan’s policies and guidance to support safe and healthy in-person experiences for our students, faculty, and staff.
Beginning in fall 2023, all U-M students residing in Michigan Housing on the Ann Arbor campus are required to have received a single dose of bivalent COVID-19 vaccine. U-M continues to allow for medical and religious exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccination.
- Submit or view your vaccination status in the Wolverine Access COVID-19 Collection with Vax Viewer. (More Info about Vax Viewer.)
- Submit an exemption request here for medical and religious reasons.
Members of the campus community are encouraged to take a health screening check before entering a U-M building or property. Visitors and vendors are encouraged to use the guest version of ResponsiBLUE app.
Masks are optional for most indoor spaces on the University of Michigan campuses. Certain units, such as Michigan Medicine, University Health Service, and the School of Dentistry, have local-level policies requiring masks under certain conditions. Individuals who have tested positive or have been exposed to COVID-19 should mask while around others through Day 10 of their isolation or self-monitoring period. See full policy and exceptions here.
