The Western Upper Peninsula Health Department (WUPHD) will resume administration of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine this week. Both the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be available during the vaccination clinic on Thursday, April 29, at the Michigan Tech SDC varsity gym.The clinic is open to individuals 18 and older. There is no charge for the vaccine or administration of the vaccine. To schedule an appointment for this clinic, please use the WUPHD’s online scheduling system. For additional clinic dates, please visit the WUPHD website at westernuphealth.org.
The moving 14-day total of detected COVID-19 cases is 17, out of 297 tests completed within that time period. We have not conducted any surveillance tests this week. Currently, 2 percent of on-campus isolation space is in use and the campus remains at Health and Safety Level Three. With the semester drawing to a close, our last day of on-campus testing will be Friday, April 30. After Friday, if you need a COVID-19 test, please work with any local health care provider. No pre-existing relationship is required.
We have selected winners in our prize drawing for surveillance testing participants. These individuals will be notified shortly.
As a reminder, under our current Health and Safety Level Protocol, the University’s face covering policy applies to everyone on campus, regardless of vaccination status. Please continue to wear your face covering, even if you are vaccinated.
This will be our last MTU Flex Team Summary for the academic year. We are deeply grateful to every member of the Michigan Tech community who helped keep our campus safe and open this semester.
