All employees, including student employees, are required to conduct daily self-screening before coming to campus. If you have COVID-like symptoms beyond your normal baseline, do not report to work and call your healthcare provider, contact the Student Health Clinic, which is a TestIowa location, at 319-273-2009 to discuss testing options, or go to the TestIowa website to determine eligibility to be tested at another TestIowa location.
You should not report to work if you’ve been in close contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) with someone who tested positive AND at least one of you was not properly wearing a mask; if you or a household member have symptoms of COVID-19 and you’re awaiting COVID-19 test results, or if you’ve received confirmation of a positive COVID-19 test result. The close contact period includes the 48 hours prior to experiencing symptoms (or getting tested if asymptomatic) until the individual that tests positive self-isolates. If you need to be away from campus for any of these reasons, contact your supervisor to see if you can continue to work remotely, or if you need to take COVID-related leave. You should complete the Panther Health Survey in any of these cases.
If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 and believe you have been exposed on the job you should contact your supervisor and complete a First Report of Injury (FROI) form (online form password is 'froi'). The FROI will be reviewed and, depending on the incident details, may be evaluated by the state’s third-party administrator to determine whether the claim meets the criteria to be classified as workers’ compensation. For additional information or questions about workers’ compensation, contact HRS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 319-273-2422 and/or review the UNI Workers' Compensation supporting web page.
Please follow your departmental protocol for reporting off work.
For more information about leaves, refer to the COVID-19 Temporary Leave Flowchart.
