The Washtenaw County Health Department, in collaboration with the university, issued a Stay in Place order for U-M undergraduate students through November 3. U-M will be issuing new guidelines for undergraduate course delivery to go into effect October 21. For undergraduates, all classes that are substantially enhanced by in-person instruction due to the nature of the instruction or space or equipment needs will continue to be taught in person. Most other undergraduate classes will be taught fully remotely. President Schlissel will host his weekly COVID briefing today at 5:00 p.m.
Markley Hall residents have been told not to attend in-person classes and observe enhanced social distancing practices for the next 14 days due to increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in the hall and the fact that a high proportion of residents have not participated in mandatory testing.
