In an email sent Saturday, University President Mark Schlissel announced that laboratory research will begin to resume with restrictions, citing Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Executive Order which allows research activities to resume.
In the email, Schlissel said all lab work that can be done remotely must continue to be done remotely. As Whitmer detailed in the MI Safe Smart Plan, some economic work can begin in phases. The University plans to follow a similar plan with a gradual return, beginning with some in-person lab work.
