ISU International Travel Guidelines

Iowa State asks everyone traveling internationally to carefully monitor symptoms, socially distance, and wear a mask if they have not completed a WHO approved COVID vaccine series during the first 14 days after arrival.


You are able to attend all in-person activities during orientation if you do not feel symptomatic. We ask that you socially distance and wear a face covering when you attend in-person events.


If you had known exposure to COVID-19 or are feeling symptoms, please contact Thielen Student Health Center for guidance at 515-294-5801 Extension #1 and minimize attending in-person activities until you receive guidance.
