Dear Concordia faculty, staff, and students,

The welfare and safety of our community during this time is our primary concern.

Under the Clery Act, which requires the University to share certain information with the community, we are writing to share that a member of the University community has tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The individual who tested positive is currently at home in self-quarantine and has received medical care.

Concordia University administrators will continue to be in communication with the Washtenaw County Health Department.

As part of our pandemic protocol, Concordia University locks residence hall rooms upon student move out. Rooms remain locked until housekeeping conducts a thorough cleaning and sterilization of each room.

For any additional important or significant updates to available information, we will send notifications to our community via email. If you have questions, please email the University at You can also check our website, for continuous updates and helpful information.
