Statement on continued health and safety guidelines

October 5, 2020

Dear campus community:

We care about you and your health and well-being. That is why we put our health and safety protocols in place, and that is why they remain in place. SVSU’s polices have not changed. We must continue to wear face coverings, practice social distancing, avoid large gatherings and follow all other guidance related to our COVID-19 response.

We understand there may be some confusion following the recent Michigan Supreme Court ruling, but all of our health and safety protocols remain in effect, because they are the best tools we have to protect ourselves.

Please continue to complete your daily health screening, and call the SVSU NEST information line at (989) 964-2110 with any questions you may have. Our policy requiring the use of face coverings is online at this link.
As always, we are grateful for your efforts to keep our campus community healthy and safe during these challenging times.
