Hey Hawkeyes!

Like many of you, we are excited that the 2020 home football season begins this Saturday for our beloved Hawkeyes. This is undoubtedly an exciting time for many of us, however, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of some of this year’s unique policies. As you are likely aware, fans are not allowed in the stadium for the games per B1G Ten Conference mandate, nor will tailgating be allowed.

While we have made progress in the spread of COVID-19 in our community, you have likely seen reports of increased hospitalizations and spread across the state. Our campus must remain dedicated to the practices that help to reduce transmission: wearing masks, maintaining social distance, and avoiding gathering in large groups. All students are expected to follow the expectations outlined in the student agreement. Failure to uphold these expectations will be addressed using the Code of Student Life.

So, when you gather to cheer on the Hawkeyes, please be mindful to do so with the members of your small campus “family unit”, as outlined here. Remember that you are subject to the guidelines of the university regardless of your proximity to the University of Iowa campus per the Code of Student Life. Even if your residence is off campus, your actions still impact the ability for the university to continue in-person operations as well as the health and safety of the UI and Iowa City communities.

For more ideas on how to support the Hawkeyes safely, check out these tips from the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.

We hope you will still engage in ways to support our Hawkeyes in a fun, safe, and healthy manner.

On Iowa and Go Hawks!
