Steps Forward: Returning to Campus, Fall 2020   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "As a guiding principle, the UI [University of Iowa] recognizes the more an individual interacts with others, and the longer the interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] spread. The university's Critical Incident Management Team (CIMT) is working to develop and disseminate policies and processes for returning employees and students to campus with the goals of limiting exposure to and slowing the spread of COVID-19. To achieve these goals, the CIMT solicited and received detailed input from multiple stakeholders, including UI and outside experts in medical and public health science; facility managers; research administrators; emergency managers; educational specialists; and others. The policies and processes developed by the CIMT represent its efforts to address multiple objectives, including a robust educational experience and a campus with a reduced risk of COVID-19 infection. The policies and procedures provided in this guidance were recommended to university leadership by the CIMT, after consideration of all available input. These policies and procedures will continue to align with policy decisions made by the governor and Board of Regents, State of Iowa. The university will continue to follow the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), in consultation with UI experts."
