COVID Weekly Update 2/04/22

February 4, 2022

This will be the last scheduled weekly COVID communication as we continue to see steep declines in reported positive cases among our campus community.

Dear Colleagues and Students,

This will be the last scheduled weekly COVID communication as we continue to see steep declines in reported positive cases among our campus community. The past few days of this week have given us much optimism that our campus community continues to do its part to keep everyone safe; we all should take great pride in this accomplishment. However, we must not let our guard down.

Please find below a few reminders to help you navigate through the coming weeks. 

  • Beginning next week, faculty, staff, and students that are not up-to-date with their vaccination requirement, including the booster when eligible, will be notified by Human Resources or the Dean of Students outlining your options for compliance with the university policy.
  • To be considered fully vaccinated and compliant with the vaccination policy, booster shots will be required for all faculty, staff, and students by today, or as soon as eligible thereafter.
    • You may upload your booster information here. Please be aware that processing times are taking longer than is typical due to high volumes. Please do not submit your information more than once.
  • COVID testing continues at the University Center clinic until the end of the semester.
  • Faculty or staff members who test positive for COVID, are required to contact the Office of Human Resources at 313-593-5190 or humanresourcesdearborn@umich.edu

As a reminder, you can stay up-to-date with the latest campus COVID information including our COVID infection dashboard, vaccination policy, and other health and safety information at the university’s COVID website. We will also share information with the campus as needed. 

Be Kind - Be Safe - Stay Warm - Go Blue - Go Dearborn!
