U-M peony garden
Following a pandemic year in which visitors were asked to stay away, the nearly-century old peony garden in the University of Michigan's Nichols Arboretum welcomed them back with a banner bloom year.
A collaboration between the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA) and the U-M School of Public Health helped get teams back on the field with pandemic precautions. U-M experts created a Return to Play Phased Activity Chart for MSYSA which outlines important details and protocols for teams, coaches and parents.
