Health and Safety Procedures

  • Vaccination Policy

    All alumni and their guests must 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 we will send you an attestation survey via email six weeks prior to the start of your Reunion weekend. Attendees and their guests must self attest that they have completed their primary COVID-19 vaccination series and one booster, at least two weeks prior to Reunion. 

    If you wish to request an exemption, you and/or your guest must show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test that was taken within 72-hours prior to the start of your first Reunion event. Guests with an exemption must show their negative PCR COVID-19 test result via phone screenshot or paper copy when they check in for Reunion.

  • What to Expect

    Unvaccinated individuals who have received an exemption must 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). You can share this negative test result via paper copy or a screenshot on your phone. You must provide this to staff at registration in order to receive event credentials.

    We will limit attendance at on- and off-campus events and social distancing guidelines may be subject to change, so register early. We also require all attendees to adhere to the U-M mask policy, detailed elsewhere on this page.

    We will confirm vaccination and health status several times over the course of the weekend. Attendees unwilling to comply with this and other safety protocols throughout the weekend will be unable to participate in Reunion events, and we will not provide refunds.

  • U-M Mask Policy

    Under current guidelines, masks are optional for indoor spaces on the University of Michigan campuses with the exception that masks remain required in certain areas, such as patient care areas and COVID-19 testing sites. Follow the link below to learn more.

    University of Michigan's Mask Policy

    The University still suggests mask use 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. Recommendations for masking for most indoor spaces on campus, including instructional spaces, will be aligned with the CDC’s COVID-19 community level for Washtenaw County at the time of the Reunion weekend. 

  • 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 optional 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.
