What Visitors Need to Know Before Coming to Campus

Protecting our campus from COVID-19 depends on all of us acting with care, responsibility and sacrifice. Sustaining the health and safety of our campus community during the COVID-19 pandemic will require action on the part of each of us, including faculty, staff, students and visitors.

We have outlined safety guidelines visitors will need to follow when coming to campus. Safety guidelines include:

  • Following the guidance of public health organizations, UNI students, faculty, staff and visiting community members will be required to wear face coverings in all campus buildings. Face coverings are required in outdoor settings when six feet or more of physical distancing cannot be maintained. Per CDC guidance, children under the age of two are not required to wear a face covering.

  • Practice physical distancing whenever possible. The CDC continues to recommend maintaining a distance of six feet from others. 

  • All guests are required to conduct a self-screening before coming to campus.

  • Please do not come to campus if you feel sick.

  • Wash your hands frequently, especially after touching shared surfaces and objects like doors, counters, sink knobs, desks, etc.

  • Visitors should plan for contact-free distribution of any materials they are looking to distribute to the campus community.

When feasible, limit on-site visits or replace them with videoconferencing or teleconferencing.

Safety Measures

The health and safety of the campus community remains top priority. Below outlines safety measures we are currently taking to provide an extra level of safety and care across our facilities:

  • We frequently clean and sanitize high-contact surfaces.

  • Hand sanitizer is available in public areas where hand washing stations are not as readily available.

  • We installed Lexan transaction barriers in locations where face-to-face interactions frequently take place, such as our retail outlets and front desk operations.

  • Measures are in place to easily allow for physical distancing within high-traffic areas like the residence halls and dining centers.

  • Required COVID-19 training and protocols for students, faculty and staff will be provided before returning to campus.
