Vaccines help prevent deadly and dangerous diseases by working with the body's natural defenses to provide immunity. The university is following guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Iowa Department of Public Health.

Face coverings

On May 20, 2021, The Iowa Board of Regents lifted its state of emergency for regent institutions and removed campus requirements for face coverings. Faculty, staff, students and visitors to campus are not required to wear a face covering. This guidance does not apply to CyRide, veterinary medicine facilities, research laboratories and health care operations. Unvaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to continue to wear a face covering while on campus.
