Today's COVID-19 Updates
Keeping you in The Loop
After a request for personal-protective equipment (PPE) was made last week, generous donations from individuals, companies, organizations, and more than 150 UI departments have shown we stand as one community against this pandemic.
COVID-19 announcements and reminders
- Reminder: Avoid walking in pairs and groups. You should try to be at least six feet apart from others. This helps to model positive social distancing behaviors to our patients.
- “We Stand Together” yard signs will be available at 4 p.m. today, at the entrances and exits for our employees working the weekend.
- The Rooftop Cafe has temporarily closed, and the Fourth Floor Salon has suspended in-person retail and cosmetology services. Call the salon at 319-356-1996 during regular business hours for a patient amenity or retail product.

Providers, consider sanitizing your workstation (desk, keyboard, phone, etc.) at the beginning and end of your clinics. Every effort helps!
