Steps for Re-opening

The Senior Leadership Team is continuing to monitor the situation and will utilize information from the Governor of Iowa, Iowa Department of Public Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), OSHA and the White House when making decisions.

The College's stepped re-opening plan is not a return to pre-pandemic normal. This situation is fluid and may change quickly because of this the College may move back and forth between steps.

This four-stepped approach is designed to have flexibility within each step to reduce the likelihood of relapse to a previous step and avoid threats that may prevent movement into the next step.
