Building use guidelines

The UUS building is closed to all besides staff and essential volunteers. The labyrinth and trails are open for visitors in the same household/pandemic pod. Everyone over 5 years of age is required to wear masks, use hand sanitizer, and keep at least 6 feet away from others who aren’t in their household/pod. Group meetings on the grounds are not allowed in Phase 1.

Contact a staff member if you have a necessary task inside the building. Incidental access to the building (such as using the bathroom or for other unessential purposes) is discouraged as much as possible and requires following all safety protocols and signing in and out. Masks, good hand-hygiene practices, and social distancing are required along with the other guidelines described in the reopening plan.

As a reminder, If you are meeting offsite as part of a UUS group, you need to follow all the guidelines for the current phase.

Staff availability & Zoom assistance

The building will be locked to the public during Phases One through Four and staff will not be available for in-person support. You can reach the office during the closure by emailing admin@uusic.org or by calling the office (319-337-3443) and leaving a message. All staff may be slower to respond to messages and requests during the closure; your patience is appreciated.

Group leaders can contact staff for help setting up virtual meetings using one of the UUS Zoom accounts, or may schedule their own meetings directly, following the guidelines of the current Phase. Any groups canceling or rescheduling events should let the office know (admin@uusic.org) so that the calendar and communications can be updated.
