MISSOULA – The University of Montana will distribute Healthy Griz Kits to all students and employees Monday through Friday, Aug. 17-28.

The kits are designed to help members of the campus community avoid illness during the coronavirus pandemic. Each kit contains two cloth masks, hand sanitizer, a micro-cloth for cleaning, a disinfectant spray bottle and a card describing UM’s commitment to the campus community.

The kits will be distributed at the East Auxiliary Gym of the Adams Center. Students and employees are asked to line up outside on the east side of the Adams Center near the Grizzly Pool and Washington-Grizzly Champions Center.

The pickup times are:

  • 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday.
  • 9:30 a.m.-5:30 Tuesday.
  • 9:30 a.m.-5:30 Wednesday.
  • 9:30 a.m.-5:30 Thursday.
  • 9:30 a.m.-5:30 Friday.

Evening pickup times also are available from 5 to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, Aug. 24-28, in the University Center Game Room.

Additionally, pickup now will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday in the University Center Atrium on the first floor.

Students and employees should bring their Griz Card or 790 number to pick up one kit per person. Face masks are required for those waiting, and individuals must stand 6 feet apart. A separate line will be available for people with disabilities and those in high-risk groups.

Please note the kits only are intended for current UM students or employees. UM retirees, vendors, affiliate groups, student affiliates and faculty affiliates will not receive kits during this distribution. Griz Cards will not work for members of these groups.

UM officials added another week to allow members of the campus community to get their kits.
