Keeping CMU safe is our shared responsibility. We can all take simple precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and in our community. Learn more about ways you can protect yourself and others.
The following guidelines, which are effective through at least the end of September, are subject to change as guidance from our state and local leaders changes:
Personal responsibility remains critical to keeping our community safe. According to the CDC, in general, the more closely you interact with others, and the longer that interaction,
the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Here are some general precautions you should always take to prevent the spread of respiratory diseases.
Learn what factors to consider before you go out, which varies based on your vaccination status. Remember: Your activities can directly impact the safety and well-being of your friends, neighbors and colleagues.
If you have questions or concerns about your health, or if you need a health care provider, please contact CMU Health by calling 989-774-6599.
Individuals without symptoms may still be COVID-19 positive, potentially spreading the virus to contacts. Please remember to adhere to all other health and safety measures, including social distancing,
wearing a face covering or mask, and washing your hands.
If you are experiencing severe symptoms, please call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.
If you feel unwell while on campus or at another CMU location and show any symptoms related to COVID-19 not
due to an underlying chronic health condition, your supervisor may direct you to go home.
If your symptoms suggest COVID-19, the supervisor must immediately email firstname.lastname@example.org to report a possible case of infection in their area.
If a faculty member, staff member or student employee believes they have contracted COVID-19 after exposure to a known COVID-positive person while working on campus,
they must report the exposure to the CMU Workers' Compensation office at 989-774-7177 as soon as possible.
Faculty, staff and students who test positive for COVID-19 must report their test result to the CMU COVID Tracking Team using either the CMU Healthscreen app
or by emailing email@example.com. You will be contacted with instruction on when and how to isolate.
Students, faculty and staff who test positive and have symptoms must isolate until:

If you are tested, you can be around others when you have no fever, respiratory symptoms have improved, and you receive two negative test results in a row, at least 24 hours apart.
Faculty, staff and students who test positive for COVID-19 but have no symptoms must isolate until 10 days have passed since a positive test, if they continue to not have symptoms.
In addition, they must report this positive test through the CMU health screening app or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on your health care provider's advice and availability of testing, you might get tested to see if you still have COVID-19.
Employees and students NOT living on campus who test positive for COVID-19 must leave campus immediately and isolate.
Students living in residence halls who test positive for COVID-19 or who have been named a close contact have two options:
CMU requires every member of the university community, including students, faculty, staff and visitors, to self-screen each day for symptoms of COVID-19 before coming to CMU's main campus or a satellite
