Detroit Mercy COVID-19 update: Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order

On Monday, March 23, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced a Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order for the State of Michigan for the next three weeks.

“For at least the next three weeks, all Michigan businesses and operations must temporarily suspend in-person operations that are not necessary to sustain or protect life, and all Michiganders must stay in their homes unless they are part of that critical infrastructure workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital or grocery store.”

Effective, March 24, McNichols campus administrators, administrative staff and faculty will be allowed access to buildings for no more than one hour, if necessary. Individuals are expected to contact Public Safety upon arrival on the McNichols campus to gain access to an office or academic building. The hours for the McNichols campus will be 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Riverfront Campus is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and access to the Corktown Campus must be arranged by calling Public Safety.

All supervisors who have employees who are part of the critical infrastructure workforce (essential) and must come to campus are required to complete the COVID-19 Campus Access Listing form and e-mail it to the addresses provided on the form. Anyone who will be approved for this, will receive a letter from Public Safety to keep with them for traveling to and from campus.
