U. Michigan Undergrads Living at Ann Arbor Campus Will Now Get Mandatory Weekly COVID Tests

U. Michigan Undergrads Living at Ann Arbor Campus Will Now Get Mandatory Weekly COVID Tests

“UM plans to increase asymptomatic testing for all members of the campus community”

The school is also going to enforce strict punishments for anyone who violates COVID policies.

MLive reports:

Mandatory weekly COVID-19 testing required for University of Michigan on-campus undergrads

Undergraduate students at the University of Michigan undergraduate student are being required to be tested weekly for COVID-19 if they need to be on the Ann Arbor campus this winter.

The mandatory weekly testing is required for students living, learning, working or doing research in person on the Ann Arbor campus during the winter semester. Testing for this group prior to starting any on-campus activities also is required and will be made available, university officials said.

The testing comes in light of UM’s decision to ask students to stay at home for the winter semester to reduce density in university student housing. In addition to testing for students who need to be on campus, UM plans to increase asymptomatic testing for all members of the campus community.

Weekly asymptomatic testing will be available for all graduate, professional and undergraduate students who are not otherwise covered by a mandatory program, as well as staff and faculty working or teaching on campus, university officials said.

Students returning to campus in the winter will encounter a strict, no-tolerance approach to enforcing COVID-19-related policies. Depending on the violation, penalties will include automatic probation, university housing contract termination and removing university recognition for student organizations hosting or participating in social gatherings.

Those are REALLY DUMB students to pay BIG BUCKS and go to those campuses.

Higher ed is hell-bent on committing suicide.

They need an excuse to artificially ramp up cases. If the same person tests positive more than once that will be recorded as multiple cases not a single case. Never mind that the 35+ PCR amplification cycles being used for tests in the US have more than 95% of the positive results being false.
