Based on U-M’s high vaccination rates and the fact that the State of Michigan is moving from a response phase to a recovery phase in the pandemic, the university is able to reduce the indoor mask requirement. Under the latest guidance from the CDC, mask use is not listed among the recommended¬†prevention behavior guidance¬†for individuals in areas with a “Medium” COVID-19 Community Level, which is the current level for Washtenaw County. Masks remain an option for anyone seeking additional protection from COVID-19.
