University of Michigan requiring Covid-19 vaccine

Kaleida Health updates visitor guidelines for non-COVID patients

As of July 30, roughly 81% of students and 65% of employees on the Ann Arbor campus, and 76% of Michigan Medicine employees already have reported their COVID-19 vaccinations. “Widespread vaccination is the primary and most effective tool that will bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control and it is the key to a vibrant and engaging academic year,” officials wrote in a email.  

Individuals who request and are approved for a medical or religious exemption will be required to complete mandatory weekly Covid-19 testing and must continue to mask indoors while on campus. The university says the exemption process for U-M campuses and Michigan Medicine is being developed and will be communicated by August 4.

The university says the announcement comes as the rate of Covid-19 infections increase across the country. The vaccine requirement will also apply to those working or learning remotely.
