Help us slow the spread of COVID-19.
Campus health and distancing practices
Wear a face mask
Face masks (cloth mask, disposable mask, or face shield with mask) are required indoors in all university buildings at all times, except when actively eating or drinking. Individuals can remove masks only in private spaces assigned to them, such as a residence hall room, office, or an individually reserved study space. Masks should be worn outside when social distancing is not possible.
Effective Friday Oct. 23, 2020, the university will no longer allow gaiters or face shields (when worn without a mask) as appropriate face coverings.
Maintain social distancing
Remain at least 6 feet away from others on campus when feasible.
Wash hands frequently
Use provided hand sanitizer stations or wash hands with soap for at least 20 seconds.
Do not leave home, attend class or go to work if you develop any symptom(s) consistent with COVID-19, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
Call your doctor
Consult your UI Health Care provider, Student Health, or personal health care provider about any symptoms to see if you need a COVID-19 test.
Communicate regularly with instructors, student housing, and unit leads to stay up-to-date on procedure changes.
