University of Michigan health professionals have been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 over the past two months.
Our goals are to deliver on our mission while protecting health and safety by minimizing the potential spread of the disease, both within our community and in the broader society. The changes we are announcing today follow the general public health principle of limiting the interaction of people within larger groups to diminish disease transmission and protect everyone in our communities, particularly the most vulnerable.
Today, we are announcing new university wide measures based on public health principles and the latest information and assessments for our community.
We will also continue to post all updates to our COVID-19 information page, as we monitor this rapidly changing situation in real time.”
