Current Phase Summary

The state of Michigan is following a six-stage approach to addressing the pandemic. The current stage for southeast Michigan is Stage 4: Improving. This means that the pandemic is no longer increasing and the region’s health systems are able to handle all current needs. This phase calls for continued use of physical distancing and face coverings and limiting gatherings to small groups. 

Here’s what that means for UM-Dearborn: 

  • UM-Dearborn classes and exams are being held remotely through the end of Summer II.
  • Remote Work: All work that can be done remotely should be. All campus buildings are locked during normal business hours, with access only available via approved MCard use. If you must be on campus for work, safety measures must be followed. 
  • All UM-Dearborn events, and events organized by others on our campus, are canceled, postponed or offered in a virtual format until further notice.
  • UM-Dearborn is suspending all domestic and international travel until further notice. More details about U-M travel restrictions and guidance can be found on the Global Michigan website, which will be updated to reflect changes.
  • Research has restarted on campus in a phased approach. Research labs will continue to operate differently in the months ahead to protect health and safety. For more information on health and safety preparations in regards to research, visit the Environmental Health & Safety website.
  • Our collective safety requires we all do our part following health and safety best practices. We should all practice strong personal hygiene habits, wear a face covering when in campus buildings, maintain a physical distance of six feet and follow posted signage/guidelines.
