By the numbers: Campus efforts to manage the pandemic
COVID-19 data from the fall semester tell a story of the tremendous effort to manage the pandemic on campus. Iowa State University’s public health team and several employee volunteers provided testing, case management and contact tracing to help limit the spread of infection. The university’s emergency operations team supported these efforts in many ways.
Months of planning coupled with quick response and flexibility, made it possible to complete the fall semester on campus. The spring semester will require a similar effort. To learn more and stay up-to-date with the latest information, bookmark these resources:
