The University of Iowa is closely monitoring the coronavirus and associated COVID-19 disease, and plans are in place to anticipate, minimize, and adequately manage its potential impact on campus life and operations. The full notice from J. Martin Scholtz, Vice President for Research at The University of Iowa, can be found here.
