Dear faculty, staff and administrators,
Earlier today Governor Kim Reynolds' press conference provided new information regarding the COVID-19 spread in Iowa. In accordance with the governor’s recommendation, UNI employees who have traveled out of state are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to self-isolate for 14 days. Employees returning from out of state travel electing to self-isolate may telework as access and responsibilities allow.
As communicated last week, employees returning from a country subject to a CDC Level 3 Travel Notice with restrictions on entry to the U.S. may not return to campus or their worksite until the conclusion of the 14-day self-isolation period prescribed by the CDC, IDPH or Department of Homeland Security. Employees returning from a cruise are also subject to this 14-day self-isolation requirement and should not come to campus or their worksite until the conclusion of this period. Employees must report such travel or cruise activity by completing this survey. Employees required to self-isolate may telework as access and responsibilities allow.
Further information will be coming from Human Resource Services about federally mandated paid leave related to COVID-19. Effective March 22, 2020 this leave may be used by employees for all or part of a self-isolation period when they are unable to telework.
