Citing U-M's high vaccination rates and the decrease in COVID case numbers throughout the state of Michigan, the University of Michigan is no longer requiring face masks in most indoor spaces on campus. This policy change went into effect on Monday, March 14, 2022. 

In accordance with this campus-wide change, we are pleased to announce that face masks are no longer required in the Kelsey Museum galleries.

However, in light of U-M's continued mask requirement for classrooms and instructional spaces during class time, the Kelsey will still require face coverings for all participants in planned tours and educational activities such as object handling. This does not include the drop-in Saturday Sampler tours. This policy will be in effect at least through the end of the current academic term.

Visitors still need to complete the ResponsiBLUE health screening before entry into the museum. This brief survey can be completed before arrival or accessed by QR code at the information desk in the museum foyer. Please visit our website for up-to-date information about the Kelsey's COVID protocols and for tips on how to plan your visit.
