Campus Protocols for Staying Healthy & Safe

Maintaining a healthy and safe campus is a priority, especially now in the era of COVID-19. For that reason, the University of Michigan-Flint Department of Public Safety (DPS) is enacting new protocols for employees who must be on campus.

The protocols are part of a broader initiative across 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.

Building Hours & Gateways

Health Screening Gateways are specific locations where MCards and ResponsiBlue health screening will be checked. The specific hours have been set to respond to the traffic flow based on courses and work hours in the specific buildings. When screening locations are open please use these main entrances to the buildings. 

Building Hours are times of the day that the building is accessible by the exterior S2 swipe locations for faculty, staff, and students, and does not require calling the Department of Public Safety to use these entrances. Public access (without a valid MCard) is restricted to only the University Pavilion at this time. Any guests of faculty, staff, or students must go through a gateway and complete the guest ResponsibBlue screening.

UM-Flint Face Covering Policy

As of August 11, 2021, UM-Flint will require all individuals to wear face coverings in university buildings beginning Aug. 11 regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings will not be required outdoors on campus. The full policy is available here, with details of limited exceptions, which include actively eating and drinking, while alone with the door closed in an enclosed office, and being in your own residence hall, including common areas. 

As a campus we are united in our commitment to working with all members of our campus community to continue to put the well-being of the campus at the forefront of all we do. It takes each of us actively working together to do the things we know are based on science that fight the common enemy that is COVID-19. We need your help as we look after one another by taking responsible actions that promote health and safety to protect one another from the spread of the virus.
