COVID-19 Information | Hub For Employees

The safety of our patients, faculty, staff, and volunteers is a top priority for University of Iowa Health Care. We have developed the following policies and protocols in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Iowa.

Most of these documents have been written since the beginning of March 2020 and are undergoing frequent revisions as the COVID-19 situation evolves. When using the documents, we caution you to be mindful of the date the document was produced and to check that against current knowledge and evolving clinical standards.

We hope that these guidelines and protocols are valuable to you and your teams. We have relied on other institutions as we developed these guidelines, and we are sharing our knowledge in the same spirit of cooperation among health care providers to combat this pandemic.

Are you an employee feeling unwell? Employees experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 can use the MyChart self-checker to schedule a COVID-19 test. Employees will answer a set of questions to find testing options and locations.
