Health and Safety Procedures
All alumni and their guests are required to submit a vaccine attestation before attending Reunion. You will be asked to acknowledge this requirement before you can select and register for your Reunion events, and an attestation survey will be sent to you via email six weeks prior to the start of your Reunion weekend. Attendees and their guests will be required to self attest that they have completed a full course of COVID-19 vaccinations, including boosters when eligible, at least two weeks prior to Reunion.
If an exemption is requested, the participant must show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test that was taken within 72-hours prior to the start of their first Reunion event. Guests with an exemption will be required to show their negative PCR COVID-19 test result via phone screenshot or paper copy when they check in for Reunion.
What to Expect
When you arrive at the Law School, all visitors and guests must complete the daily ResponsiBLUE guest screening health tool. This applies every day that you are attending programs or accessing a building on campus. You will be asked to show your green “Passed” screen at Reunion registration and/or each event you attend.
Unvaccinated individuals who have received an exemption will be required to show negative test results from a test taken within 72 hours of arrival (this timeframe may change based on state and federal guidance closer to Reunion). This negative test result can be shared via paper copy or a screenshot on your phone. This information must be provided to staff at registration in order to receive event credentials.
Space will be limited at on- and off-campus events and social distancing guidelines may be subject to change, so register early. Guests will also be required to adhere to the U-M mask policy, detailed elsewhere on this page.
Vaccination and health status will be confirmed several times. Attendees unwilling to comply with this and other safety protocols throughout the weekend will be unable to participate in Reunion events, and refunds will not be provided.
U-M Mask Policy
Effective March 14, masks will be optional for indoor spaces on the University of Michigan campuses with the exception that masks remain required in all classrooms, instructional spaces, U-M buses, and certain other areas. Follow the link below to learn more.
Mask use is still suggested as an effective strategy for enhanced personal protection, especially for those with compromised immune status, those who are not vaccinated or up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, and anyone with a perceived increased situational risk.
On-Campus Event Policy
At our on-campus events, The University of Michigan Law School adheres to all current and applicable University of Michigan, federal, state, and local COVID-19 guidelines, requirements, policies, protocols, procedures, and the like (the "COVID-19 Requirements"), including, but not limited to, requiring compliance with the University of Michigan Face Covering Policy for COVID-19 and use of the ResponsiBLUE guest screening health tool. By registering for and attending one of our on-campus events, you accept the inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and agree to abide by the COVID-19 Requirements, including those issued by the University of Michigan. You also agree that you will not attend one of our on-campus events if you are sick or have been exposed to someone who is sick with COVID-19 or otherwise.
Off-Campus Event Policy
At our off-campus events, The University of Michigan Law School adheres to all current and applicable federal, state, local, and individual business COVID-19 guidelines, requirements, policies, protocols, procedures, and the like (the "COVID-19 Requirements"). By registering for and attending one of our off-campus events, you accept the inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and agree to abide by the COVID-19 Requirements for the event. You also agree that you will not attend one of our off-campus events if you are sick or have been exposed to someone who is sick with COVID-19 or otherwise. Additionally, and depending on local requirements, even if the COVID-19 Requirements do not require face coverings at any particular event, The University of Michigan Law School strongly encourages everyone to wear face coverings at our off-campus events. An exception to this would be if the guest is actively eating or drinking.
