Campus Update graphic

You can find the most updated dashboard numbers here, and the historical data here. For those interested, COVID-19 data for the State of Iowa is here.

Campus will continue to operate in YELLOW. Our case counts remain very low. Please keep wearing masks and following guidelines so we can continue this trend.

A few important notes:

  • The on-campus Test Iowa site is closed due to Easter Break, April 1 - 5, 2021. The testing site otherwise remains open and you can schedule an appointment using the information found here.
  • Vaccination appointments for Iowans with underlying health conditions are available. You are encouraged to read the press release to determine if you are eligible.
  • Iowa's Governor has indicated that vaccinations will be open to all adults who wish to receive them as early as April 5. We will update you as more information becomes available. We will also continue to work with local officials to see about the possibility of offering on-campus vaccinations. 

Though Morningside has continued to see low case counts, other areas of Iowa and the country have seen upticks in places where restrictions have relaxed. Please continue to be diligent about washing your hands, wearing your mask, staying home when you are ill, and taking care of one another so we can keep our numbers down.

Thank you and have a great week!

Be well,
John Reynders
President
