COVID-19 Campus Guidelines Remain in Place

by MTU Flex Task Force

This past Friday, Governor Whitmer moved Region 8 (the Upper Peninsula) back to Phase 4 of the MI Safe Start Plan and the Michigan Supreme Court issued a ruling that effectively invalidated the governor’s COVID-19-related executive orders after April 30. Since then, the MTU Flex Task Force has received questions as to how these developments (in addition to the emergency order issued yesterday by the Department of Health and Human Services) might affect the status of COVD-19 protocols on campus. In short, these changes will not alter the Health and Safety Level on campus or impact educational operations.

Please Report All Test Results

Data is one of the key tools Michigan Tech is using to try to find COVID-19 cases quickly, stop the spread and keep the campus community and our local community safe.

In the ongoing efforts to keep our community as safe and informed as possible in the midst of the current global coronavirus pandemic, Michigan Tech asks employees who have had a COVID-19 test and work on campus to inform the University via the Report a COVID-19 Test Form, which has been added to the MTU Flex Portal.

If you have received a COVID-19 test, Michigan Tech needs certain information regarding that test, including the date of the test, the result of the test, the date when symptoms, if any, were first experienced and your last date on campus.
