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. This is our third week with no new cases. 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 Spring Break and will reopen Monday, March 15.
  • Though we will send a weekly update, we will NOT be reporting new dashboard numbers next week since the Test Iowa site and Student Health are closed this week. Dashboard numbers will be updated again March 23.
  • The Iowa Department of Public Health is now accepting vaccination appointments for Iowans with underlying health conditions. You are encouraged to read the press release to determine if you are eligible.
  • Yesterday, the CDC released new health and safety guidance for individuals who have been fully vaccinated for at least two weeks. You can read the details here, but the changes do relax masking and quarantine requirements for those individuals. Here on campus, ALL individuals are expected to continue wearing a mask per our guidelines so long as we continue operating in yellow. 

For those of you enjoying Spring Break, please enjoy and be safe. To those keeping things going here on campus, thank you for all you do.

Be well,

Spicer
