Alcohol use can lower inhibitions and affect decision-making, which could make it harder to follow COVID-19 safety measures. Note that drinking alcohol can weaken your
immune system, making it harder for your body to fight off illness.
How to be a part of the team that keeps our community safe:

- Talk it out with your friends. What is your plan to Stay in the Blue? Check out U-M student created strategies on ways to reduce harm from alcohol.
