Novel Coronavirus

The Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic has created substantial challenges to normal operations in the Department of Microbiology & Molecular Genetics.  This page is intended to provide key information on Covid-19 related news to department members and department visitors.  

On July 30th, President Stanley made the announcements below.  Click here to read President Stanley's letter.

  1. All individuals are required to wear masks indoors beginning Aug. 1 in all campus buildings and other MSU facilities in East Lansing and throughout the state. This requirement will be in place for at least the first weeks of the fall semester.
  2. All students, faculty and staff are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 with an FDA-authorized or WHO-approved vaccine by Aug. 31. Limited exemptions for medical or religious reasons will be provided.

COVID-19 vaccines have been widely used and shown to be extremely effective and everyone is highly encouraged to get one.  All members of the MSU community can receive a free COVID‑19 vaccine through the MSU Health Care Pharmacy. For those not in the East Lansing area, you can visit www.vaccines.gov to find a U.S. vaccination site.

We also highly encourage all Spartans to view MSU’s coronavirus website for the latest updates and information. Together We Will!
