COVID-19 Policies

Vaccination Policy

The University of Michigan’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement is an important and effective component of our plan to protect our community and patients from COVID-19. All U-M faculty, staff, and students - including all three campuses and Michigan Medicine - are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination series and one booster, with limited exemptions. This policy is subject to change as the pandemic and public health guidance continue to evolve and will be regularly reviewed as public health guidance dictates.

Face Covering Policy

Research shows that transmission of COVID-19 is greatly reduced, and lives are saved when all individuals wear face coverings while in public. Vaccination is also an effective tool to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It is the shared responsibility of the entire U-M community to protect not only their health but the health of those who are most vulnerable to serious illness and death from COVID-19. This policy is separate and distinct from the U-M COVID-19 Vaccination Policy. Please refer to that policy for more information about vaccination requirements at the university.

Except as otherwise allowed by this policy, U-M requires all students, staff, faculty, and visitors to wear a face covering that covers the mouth and nose when indoors on U-M property (including the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses as well as U-M controlled properties off campus) and when on U-M buses. Certain units, such as the University of Michigan – Health, may issue local-level policies that supersede this policy and must be followed as applicable.
