University of Michigan Announces COVID-19 Guidelines For Students Returning To Campus In The Fall

Aug 4, 2020

The University of Michigan has released guidelines for students returning to campus in the fall during COVID-19.  

All students must observe a 14-day period of enhanced social distancing at home before arriving in Ann Arbor or on campus.  Students moving into campus residence halls and apartments are expected to be tested and cleared for COVID-19 before arriving in Ann Arbor.  Susan Cerniglia is a spokesperson for the Washtenaw County Health Department.

Susan Cerniglia: What we’re working on is a process on making sure that there is a central location for students to get testing and that that testing is being reported and coordinated with the health department.

The university will provide accommodations for students who test positive while on campus.  International students will be required to start their 14-day period of enhanced social distancing once they arrive in Ann Arbor.  Eastern Michigan University is currently working on guidelines for students who will return to campus this fall.
