Covid policy changes coming June 30, 2022
The University of Iowa is preparing to sunset several policies implemented during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic consistent with the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, lifting the COVID-19 State of Emergency in 2021.
These policies include:
COVID-19 leave requests (80 additional hours of sick leave), which will end on June 30, 2022
Professional and Scientific and Merit staff temporary hour limits, which will return to pre-pandemic norms on July 1, 2022. The limit is 780 hours per fiscal year for Merit. P&S limits can be viewed here.
Because of these changes, many University Human Resources web pages will be updated to reflect new information. Some outdated pages will be archived.
See below for a comprehensive list of policy pages that will be impacted beginning 6/30 for more information:
- COVID-19 Leave of Absence Information and Resource
- COVID-19 Leave Scenarios
- Temporary Appointments
