Consistent with Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance, students, employees, and visitors should stay home and not interact with others if they are ill. We will follow the IDPH flowchart for evaluating sick individuals on campus.

Arrival Procedure

All campus visitors will go to Domokos Hall to complete the health screening, have their temperature taken, and sanitize their hands. They will receive a badge upon arriving on campus to help others know that they have checked in and completed the necessary check-in process.

Health Screening
By visiting campus, individuals are agreeing that you and anyone in your party:

  • has not had a persistent, dry cough.
  • has not had a headache.
  • has not been diagnosed with or had contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 10 days.
  • do not have a NEW loss of taste or smell.
  • will take each person’s temperature before arriving to verify the absence of a fever (in excess of 100.4º. Screening will also be available on site).

Upon arrival, each individual or group will give a verbal confirmation that they are feeling well (see list above). If a temperature hasn’t been taken ahead of time, screening will be available on site. An individual has a temperature if above 100.4º.

If an individual cannot confirm that they are free from COVID-19 symptoms (see list above), they will be graciously asked to leave campus.
