The path forward will continue to be challenging, but working together we can reimagine how we deliver our campus experience while we continue to learn and work in a hybrid (primarily remote) environment. We’re all in this together; each of us plays an important role in keeping our community safe and healthy.
Campus Health and Safety Measures
We are following the health and safety guidelines developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state of Michigan, our University of Michigan colleagues and our own experts to ensure a safe campus environment for our students, faculty and staff.
We’re implementing the protocols below, and will remain flexible and update/add to these based on new guidance.
- Before coming to campus, all UM-Dearborn faculty, staff, student employees and research assistants (who have been approved to be on campus) must complete the U-M online training on MyLinc COVID-19: Working Safely at U-M. This provides instruction on physical distancing, wearing of face coverings, personal hygiene and other guidance.
- Before coming to campus, all UM-Dearborn faculty, staff, student employees and research assistants (who have been approved to be on campus) must complete a daily health screening.
- Face coverings must be worn within campus buildings, unless an individual is alone in a private office space. Face coverings must be worn outdoors if social distancing is not possible. Face masks will be provided for those who need them. Please note, some people cannot wear face coverings for medical and other related reasons.
- Employees may not bring their children, or any other guests, to campus.
- Directional and instructional signage will continue to be placed throughout campus regarding guidelines and expected behavior. As we approach the start of the fall semester, we will conduct a communications campaign focused on public health awareness and behavior.
- Reducing density of people on campus and in indoor settings.
- Reconfiguring interior spaces to promote physical distancing in classrooms, learning spaces, labs, common spaces and offices.
- Expanding sanitation measures, including ensuring surface hygiene.
- Planning for contact tracing of students, faculty and staff to continuously monitor for potential spread and to track, notify and self-quarantine those who have had contact with a diagnosed COVID-19 case.
