UM students who live on Ann Arbor campus must be vaccinated, the school says
LANSING, me. – – The University of Michigan will require COVID-19 vaccinations for students living on Ann Arbor campus this fall, school officials said Friday.
President Mark Schlissel said no shots are required for faculty, staff and other students “at this point”, but he strongly encouraged everyone to get vaccinated.
The requirement will allow dorms to work safely at near normal capacity, he said after there were more than 600 cases in dormitories in the fall.
In the coming weeks, the university will begin to excuse vaccinated students from the mandatory coronavirus tests.
Those who are vaccinated do not need to quarantine themselves after close contact as long as they do not have symptoms.

This applies to anyone who will be on campus from September 1st for any reason. Students who are completely removed do not have to do this.
