Students and families

As the pandemic continues, we thank you for your continued efforts to keep yourself and each other healthy and safe.

As we continue to learn how to live with the virus long-term, a combination of vaccination, masking, social distancing, staying home when sick, keeping a distance or masking when in large groups, seeking testing when showing symptoms, and following isolation and quarantine protocols will help us maintain a safe and healthy campus community.

Read more about mitigation best practices in the latest UM System message to university community members, here.
