New Mask Protocol

NMU has changed its COVID mask protocol as of Monday, Jan. 10. Northern is now requiring all NMU students, faculty and staff and visitors to wear N95, KN95, KF94 masks on campus or to double mask a cloth mask with a surgical mask when those masks are not available. 

In-Person Classes Underway

Northern Michigan University will resume in-person classes Tuesday (Jan. 18) after distributing KN95 masks to students and employees. The mask distribution will take place at various sites on campus from Friday through Tuesday (Jan. 14-18).

Providing Proof of Vaccination

Students and employees can quickly and conveniently upload vaccination cards or other types of vaccination documentation through The Bridge App. After you upload your image the NMU Health Center medical staff will review your document and mark your NMU record with a COVID-19 vaccination flag.

Knowing the percentage of our campus population that is vaccinated will help make decisions about what pandemic protocols need to remain or can be lifted as we prepare for the fall semester.
