Updates from the State of Michigan

On Monday, July 13, 2020, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer enacted Executive Order 2020-147, which provides guidance for when masks must be worn by those residing in or visiting Michigan.

Governor Whitmer has also extended the declared state of emergency and state of disaster related to the COVID-19 pandemic until August 11, 2020 through Executive Order 2020-151.

KCAD is closely monitoring and following state regulations as well as guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.



KCAD students: This fall, all of us—students, faculty, and staff—will need to be flexible and adaptable, and more importantly, we will need to practice empathy and understanding toward one another. As we work together to navigate the ongoing impact of COVID-19, we want to be sure our efforts are focused on understanding and addressing your needs as well as ensuring our campus remains a safe and healthy learning environment.

If you need assistance, have questions, or would like to share your concerns or comments, please contact us via our Ask KCAD feedback portal.
