The COVID-19 response team that launched this week will give faculty and staff an easy way to quickly get assistance with common issues and, when the unanticipated comes up, connect with university leaders to seek answers.
Employees can reach the response team 24 hours a day by calling the Iowa Concern hotline at 800-447-1985. Operators will have information, provided by the response teams, for addressing common concerns such as needing more Cyclones Care signs or enforcing the face coverings policy.
Help welcome students to campus! As part of keeping our ISU Campus community healthy, sign up to help distribute cloth face coverings to students as they start the new semester. All shifts are outdoors. We have created shorter shifts to create balance with other back-to-school responsibilities. For the safety of all, best practices will be in place. Demonstrate Cyclones Care and be a part of this!
