County recommends “Stay in place”

The Washtenaw County Health Department is recommending that all currently enrolled University of Michigan students living on or near the Ann Arbor campus stay in place at their campus-area addresses starting today through Feb. 7. This is being done to help slow the spread of COVID-19 – including the more easily transmitted B.1.1.7. variant. 

This recommendation, which has the full support of the university, is directed at all U-M undergraduate, graduate and professional students enrolled in the Winter 2021 term and currently residing on or off campus in Washtenaw County. Students are being asked to: 

  • Remain at their campus-area addresses 
  • Not gather with others outside of their household members. 

Students are permitted to leave their residence only to participate in limited activities, including: 

  • In-person classes
  • Work or research that cannot be completed remotely
  • Obtaining food and medical care
