The University of Iowa is preparing to sunset select Human Resources policies implemented during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in compliance with the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, lifting the COVID-19 State of Emergency in 2021.

These policies include:

  • COVID-19 leave requests (80 additional hours of sick leave), which will end on June 30, 2022
  • Professional and Scientific and Merit staff temporary hour limits will return to pre-pandemic norms (780 hours) on July 1, 2022

The University Human Resources website is updated to reflect these changes.

Thank you for everything you’ve done over the past two years to support the university, our students, our patients, and each other through the pandemic.
