Return to Campus: Visitors

by University Marketing and Communications

On Monday (July 27), Michigan Tech enters Step Three of our Return to Campus Plan. In this final step, we resume campus operations at the level at which the University will function when students return, and transition to the Health and Safety Levels system that we will maintain from the fall semester forward.

In addition to the return of students and University employees, Step Three allows for campus visitation. Joel Isaacson, senior associate athletic director, said while visitors to campus are allowed, all visitors must fill out a COVID-19 Visitor Tracking Form.

On Monday, July 27, Michigan Tech will enter the final step of our Return to Campus Plan. Step Three concludes our return to campus and marks our transition to the Health and Safety Levels system that we will maintain from the fall semester forward.

Beginning July 27, we plan to resume campus operations at the level at which Michigan Tech will function when students return. Previous expectations outlined in Steps One and Two remain in effect, including enhanced hygiene and social distancing protocols. Of course, those who need to work from home due to health concerns are encouraged to do so, using either a flexible work agreement with their supervisor or a COVID-19 accommodation


Understanding Campus Health and Safety Levels

Last month, Michigan Tech entered Step Two in the three-step Return to Campus Plan. Prior to the start of the fall semester, the University will begin Step Three, which calls for a return to near-normal operations and the return of students to campus. Once the semester starts, the Return to Campus Plan will end, and the University will transition to using Health and Safety Levels on campus.

Sarah Schulte, general counsel and secretary to the Board of Trustees, said the five levels are focused on returning students and additional employees back to campus as safely as possible and on creating the environment needed to continue the fall semester uninterrupted. “The levels give us the flexibility to offer students and employees the most normal campus experience possible while keeping the health and safety of everyone on campus as our first priority,” Schulte said.


Return to Campus: The Status of Campus

by University Marketing and Communications

Last month, Michigan Tech began Step Two of our Return to Campus Plan. As the University prepares for Step Three, students and employees, understandably, have questions. To address the student experience, we spoke with Sarah Schulte, general counsel and secretary to the Board of Trustees. Schulte said that once we enter Step Three and return to campus with the start of the fall semester, the University will immediately transfer to the five-tier Michigan Tech Campus Health and Safety Level system.
