Duderstadt Center Covid-19 updates related to revised U-M facial-covering policy
(updated on this page: August 16, 2022)
From the U-M Campus Maize & Blueprint (PDF document):
University of Michigan Face Covering Policy for COVID-19
Effective May 2, 2022
Masks are optional for indoor spaces on the University of Michigan campuses with the exception that masks remain required in patient care areas (e.g Michigan Medicine, University Health Service and the Dental School clinical areas), and at U-M Covid-19 testing sites. The policy is in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Covid-19 community level guidance which provides a measure of the impact of COVID-19 illness on health and healthcare systems in addition to current case activity to allow communities to make decisions on mitigation measures as appropriate for their area.
Mask use is still suggested as an effective strategy for enhanced personal protection, especially for those with compromised immune status, those who are not vaccinated or up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, and anyone with a perceived increased situational risk.
What does this mean for users of the Duderstadt Center?
- Most areas, including open spaces, library seating, open computing workstations, and study spaces, will no longer require masking.
- Spaces being used for classroom instruction will require masking during class times.
- Some DC spaces permit walk-in use but may also include concurrent classroom instruction. For example, you may be working on a personal project in a lab or studio at a time when a formal class session begins. Course attendees and others in the same space should be masked.
- Signage will be posted at the entrances to specific DC spaces that may require masking, with instructions on when masks could be required for use of the space. Please note these areas and respect the requests of instructors and/or DC staff to mask where appropriate under the new U-M mask policy.
