Maintaining a healthy and safe campus is a priority, especially now in the era of COVID-19. For that reason, the UM-Flint Department of Public Safety (DPS) is enacting new protocols for employees who must be on campus this summer.
The protocols are part of a broader initiative across the all University of Michigan campuses. Designed using the latest public health information on mitigating the spread of the virus, the protocols require the understanding and cooperation of all of our campus community members. The well-being of the campus community is a shared responsibility by all of us.
Prior to your visit to campus, please reach out to the DPS Communication Center at (810) 762-3333 to request entry to the building you are accessing.
Here is what you can expect when you arrive on campus:
- You will be asked a short list of health screening questions. You can read and complete these questions in advance of your visit at https://responsiblue.umich.edu/sign-in. You will need to provide confirmation that you completed the screening online within two hours of your visit to campus. For employees who have been instructed to work on campus, it is the responsibility of their direct supervisor to ensure that the health screening protocols listed here are followed. The ResponsiBLUE health screening app is available in both the Apple App Stores as well as the Google Play stores for Android devices. Just search for ResponsiBLUE.
- If you do not meet the criteria of the screening for entry, you will not be allowed to enter the buildings on campus.
- All employees and visitors to campus must have a face covering, either a mask, scarf, or bandana. Any individual without a face covering will be denied entry into the buildings.
- If an individual does not have a face covering when they arrive, they can receive one from DPS at the Hubbard Building during regular business hours of 8am - 5pm.
These ongoing measures are for the health and safety of all people. When each of us follows these steps, we are protecting ourselves and those around us. It takes all of us doing our part to keep each other healthy, and to limit to the best of our ability the virus spread during the ongoing pandemic.
