COVID-19 Information

Keeping our campus community healthy

We must work together to keep ourselves and our campus community healthy. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect your physical health and mitigate the spread of the virus to others.


Health Monitoring

To limit the spread of COVID-19, individuals should monitor their health every day before coming to campus and stay home if not feeling well. According to the CDC, symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms:

  • Limit contact with others.
  • Contact Thielen Student Health Center or your personal healthcare provider.
  • Notify your instructor or supervisor.

If you test positive for COVID-19:

  • STAY HOME except to seek medical care.
  • Follow guidance from your health care provider.
  • Consult the CDC’s webpage on isolation for more information and guidelines.

Face Coverings

Personal choice: Faculty, staff, students, and visitors to campus may choose to wear or not wear a face mask anywhere they deem appropriate.

Public Health Monitoring

All positive COVID-19 test results that are reported to the State of Iowa Department of Health and Human Services is included in the state’s Influenza and Respiratory Virus report. The state website is the most complete source for information.
