The COVID-19 Response Team continues to work with Genesee County Public Health Department and with the Office of the President to adapt to the situation as it evolves and to provide our community with the most current information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

If cases of COVID-19 are identified within the campus community, the University is using protocols we have established and that are outlined in our Safe Campus 2021 Guidelines to identify potential exposure, to contact trace and to quarantine impacted individuals.

Due to privacy and other concerns, not all details of the University’s response to a particular incident will be made public, but we are committed to providing our community with timely and current information as appropriate regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts on our campus. Private communications provide additional information to individuals who have had direct contact (defined as less than 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) with a positive individual(s) as identified through contact tracing.

The University is fully committed to the health and safety of its entire community and will continue to closely monitor this situation and any others that impact our campus.

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, members of the University community are required to wear mask while on campus, maintain social distancing of at least six feet, and practice good hygiene such as washing one’s hands regularly. Additional resources are available at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Updates on Kettering University and COVID-19 will be posted here and on official University social media accounts.
