General Information

Testing

  • All students and employees who are experiencing any symptoms should be tested and NOT come to campus.

If a student or employee needs a test outside these dates, students can contact the Wellness Center and employees should work with their personal health provider and contact HR with any additional questions
  • The official state of Michigan website now offers a quick, easy way to find testing availability throughout the state that includes options for those with no insurance or doctor’s note as well as no cost. Click here and type in your zip code to find locations, hours and other details.

Events

  • Until further notice, on-campus events are have been cancelled, postponed or modified.
  • Events that can be rescheduled are being evaluated.
  • Some of Kettering University's robust slate of pre-college programs previously scheduled June and July are now being offered as Virtual Camps.

Travel

  • Currently, all University-sponsored travel for faculty, staff and students is cancelled regardless of the state of planning or the nature of any commitments made in support of that travel.
  • Effective immediately (July 28, 2020) and until further notice, students and employees who choose to travel to another state in the U.S. with a COVID-19 positive testing rate of 10% or higher on a seven-day rolling average must take one of two safety measures prior to returning to campus, either: (1) self-quarantine for 14 days without symptoms of COVID-19 arising, or (2) self-quarantine for a minimum of 7 days and then be tested for COVID-19 with a negative test result. To determine the positive testing rate for a given state, the University will utilize the data supplied daily by the John Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center through its website link "Testing Trends Tool." If the state traveled to is shown to have a positive testing percentage of 10% or higher on the day of return, students and/or employees will have to take one of the two safety measures outlined above before returning to campus. During any quarantine period, employees may not return to campus and would need to work remotely. If unable to work remotely, employees will need to use available paid sick time, personal time or vacation time hours in order to be compensated. Students in quarantine will be required to take courses virtually (all are being offered via livestream). Employees with questions can contact HR, students should speak to the Wellness Center.
  • Any student, faculty or staff member planning future University-related travel domestically should follow existing protocols and approvals before confirmation.
  • Those planning overseas travel (irrespective of CDC status) must follow existing approval processes as outlined by the Office of International Programs (OIP), observing any temporary restrictions imposed by the University.
