Face coverings reduce the spread of COVID-19, including breakthrough infections.
U-M mandates all individuals will be required to wear face coverings inside university buildings regardless of vaccination status. U-M requires face coverings on campus transit and indoors in most settings, and recommends them for spectators and others at outdoor athletic events, to reduce the spread of COVID-19, including breakthrough infections. Face coverings are not required outdoors on campus.
U-M requires COVID-19 vaccinations by August 30 for all students, faculty and staff with limited exemptions. Widespread vaccination remains our best protection against COVID-19. U-M has enforcement policies for students and employees to support the vaccination requirement. Those few who receive an exemption from vaccination must be tested weekly. Vaccination and face coverings are the two most important tools we have to protect health and safety, and leadership will focus strongly on compliance.
These steps must be completed by students, faculty and staff by August 30:
- If you have already reported your vaccination to U-M, there is nothing more you need to do.
- If you have received all doses of a COVID-19 vaccine series, but have not yet reported your information, please do so here.
- If you have received a first dose of the vaccine, report that here. You will be required to complete weekly COVID-19 testing.
- If you would like to request a medical or religious exemption, you can do so here. You will be required to complete weekly COVID-19 testing and continue to mask while on campus.
