It is a Wildcat tradition to support and take care of one another. This commitment to each other, our campus community and the region may never be more important or evident as it is during the current COVID-19 worldwide pandemic when our individual and collective actions may literally be life-saving.

If you have symptoms or possible exposure, do not go to work

Contact Human Resources if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Contact your supervisor if you:

  • feel unwell,
  • are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or
  • believe you have been exposed to someone with the COVID-19 virus.

If you develop symptoms while you are at work, call or email your supervisor, or wear a mask to inform your supervisor from a minimum six-foot distance. You will be required to go home. For medical emergencies, call 911. Your supervisor will file a confidential form that will be submitted to the NMU designated reporter.
