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.
Health Screening Locations
Limited access points are in place across the campus at this time, as well as reduced building hours due to the low level of activity on the campus during the pandemic. At each access point is a health screen check-in conducted by the UM-Flint Department of Public Safety. Below is a complete list of all the places you can access the campus. Please come ready with your ResponsiBLUE health screening completed, a face covering, and your M-Card. The ResponsiBLUE health screening app is available in both the Apple App Store as well as the Google Play Store for Android devices. Just search for ResponsiBLUE.

University of Michigan Face Covering Policy for COVID-19
U-M requires all students, staff, faculty, and visitors to wear a face covering that covers the mouth and nose anywhere on U-M property (including the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses as well as properties off campus). This includes when inside buildings, outdoors and on U-M transportation. It is difficult to maintain distance from groups even while outdoors on a busy university campus, and so face coverings outdoors will help slow the spread of the virus. The complete face covering policy can be viewed here.
Face Covering Non-Compliance Reporting
The University of Michigan requires all students, staff, faculty, and visitors to wear a face covering that covers the mouth and nose while anywhere on campus grounds. This includes when inside buildings, outdoors and on U-M transportation on all campuses. Face coverings are meant to protect other people in case the wearer is unknowingly infected but does not have symptoms (CDC, 2020).
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.
