Before coming to campus everyone is required to complete the ResponsiBLUE daily health screening. If after answering the daily health screening questions you receive a red X please do not come to campus and follow the prompts in ResponsiBLUE. If you received the red X because you are required to complete COVID testing, you may come to campus to visit the testing and vaccination clinic and/or with documentation of your negative COVID test.

If you or the student is feeling ill or tests positive for COVID-19:

Student: If you learn of a student who is feeling ill or who has tested positive for COVID-19, please direct them to contact COVID student support at 313-593-5056 or email DearbornCOVIDsupport@umich.edu. The phone line and the email address are staffed and monitored by Student Affairs, and the Dean of Students’ office is the central repository for student COVID concerns. 

The Dean of Students’ office will reach out to the student and ask a series of questions regarding the onset of symptoms, when they tested positive, and/or when they were in close contact with the person recently diagnosed with COVID-19. 

The Dean of Students’ office works collaboratively with the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to identify all potential close contacts and will contact the instructor and department chair. The Dean of Students’ office will consult with OEM, the College Dean, and other leaders to determine if any additional action needs to be taken.

If you are too sick to continue your remote instruction, please notify your discipline/department chair and Human Resources.

Official notification on any implications for your class will come from the College Dean and/or Provost.
