“New Expectations for a Safer TODAY” — NEST

In response to potential COVID-19 disruptions, SVSU developed the Cardinal NEST Plan, which offers us the flexibility to adapt to changing demands for your health and safety — today and tomorrow, in classrooms and dining halls, and among friends and faculty alike.

Mask Requirements

Effective SPRING TERM: Monday, May 9, 2022

Masks will NO LONGER BE REQUIRED in any campus setting, including classes and labs. Anyone who chooses to wear a mask should feel comfortable doing so, and we all should be respectful of our colleagues and classmates.

We will continue to monitor health conditions and remain in regular communication with Covenant HealthCare and others, and we are prepared to make additional adjustments, as necessary.

COVID-19 Booster Status

We encourage everyone who is vaccinated to get their booster shot as soon as they are eligible. Students, faculty and staff can upload their proof of a booster shot below.

Report Your COVID-19 Booster Status

COVID-19 Testing

We continue to strongly encourage testing for unvaccinated individuals, but it is not required.

Testing requirements will remain in effect where necessary, such as for NCAA student-athletes and Athletics staff, students with clinical placements, and the like.

Quarantine/Isolation Update

The Saginaw County Health Department has updated its guidance for the quarantine period for individuals who test positive for COVID-19 or are exposed to COVID-19. We are revising our policies and procedures accordingly, effective Monday, Jan. 10.

If you test positive for COVID-19:

  • You must isolate for at least 5 days and notify covidreport@svsu.edu. If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving (no fever for 24 hours) after 5 days, you may return to campus -- upon receiving notice from SVSU’s contact tracing team -- and adhere to strict mask usage for an additional 5 days.

If you are exposed to COVID-19, you should continue to strictly mask, but you do not need to quarantine.
