As we navigate our changing environment, we have the following updates for you.
Masks and Physical Distancing
Hawkeye updated its masks and physical distancing policies to follow CDC guidelines:
- Vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask.
- Masks and physical distancing are recommended for unvaccinated individuals on campus.
- Individuals are welcome to wear a mask on campus if they feel more comfortable doing so.
We are in the process of updating our campus signage to reflect our new guidelines.
Vaccinations are Recommended
With the changes in CDC guidelines for masks and distancing, the most effective way to protect yourself and those you love is through vaccinations. Vaccines are also critical in preventing the transmission of the virus.
We encourage all students, faculty, and staff to get vaccinated.
Campus life and events will resume this fall with student activities, clubs and organizations meetings, recreational activities, and more.
Outside groups and organizations can conduct meetings and hold events on campus.
Reminder to Report Symptoms
Students experiencing any flu-like symptoms should stay at home, contact their instructor, and report their symptoms regardless of their vaccination status. Individuals with symptoms may be referred to the Student Health Clinic to be tested.
Thank you for your patience and flexibility! We are in this together!
