Revised face-covering policy - 5/11/2021

May 13, 2021

In Michigan, COVID positive cases continue to decrease and the number of individuals vaccinated continues to increase, all good news.

Dear Colleagues, 

In Michigan, COVID positive cases continue to decrease and the number of individuals vaccinated continues to increase, all good news. As a result of the improving conditions, effective immediately, UM-Dearborn is allowing individuals to be mask-free while outdoors when alone or in gatherings of less than 100 people. It applies to everyone, and aligns with the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services Gathering and Face Mask Order as well as policies at U-M Ann Arbor and UM-Flint.

Members of the campus community are still encouraged to carry a face covering while outdoors in the event one is needed. The updated UM-Dearborn Face Covering Policy states individuals must wear a face covering when “inside buildings, on U-M transportation like the shuttle, participating in organized contact sports and when outdoors in gatherings of 100 or more.” 

Sincerely, 

Laura
