The Re-entry Committee would like to share a few important updates with you.
MIOSHA Lifts Emergency Workplace Rules for Most Employers
As Michigan returns to full capacity, all gathering restrictions and face mask orders have been lifted by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Last week, the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) filed new COVID-19 emergency rules to align with the federal OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standards. Most notably, MIOSHA’s new emergency rules “supersede the entirety of the emergency rules filed on May 24, 2021,” and expressly adopt the federal OSHA standards for the healthcare industry.
With these updates, our priority moving forward continues to be encouraging and promoting a safe workplace for all. The University will continue to follow best practices concerning daily health screenings, face coverings and social distancing. This means faculty, staff and student-employees should continue completing the daily symptom checker before coming to work, and to please mask up if you are not fully vaccinated and cannot maintain 6-ft of distance from others. While these are no longer MIOSHA or University requirements, they are recommended as best practices by the CDC.
The University’s healthcare settings will follow the federal OSHA standards established for the healthcare industry.

Do Your Part
Check Your Symptoms
Use the Symptom Checker every day to stay on top of how you're feeling. Everyone is required to complete it every day before coming to campus. If you're not feeling well, stay home.
Report a Positive Test Result
It is critical to report a positive test result to us so we can immediately begin taking measures to protect our community, even if you are not exhibiting symptoms and feel fine. We will never release your information to the general public.
If you are not fully vaccinated, please mask up if you are unable to maintain 6-ft of social distance from others.
