Coronavirus Notice

Update: If you need to meet with our staff at IVRS, if 1. the meeting cannot occur virtually or there's a reason it needs to happen in person AND 2. safety precautions are followed (wearing a mask, washing your hands, etc.), then you may come in to meet in person. You may be asked some questions before the meeting begins. Virtual meetings will still take priority over in-person meetings.

Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services will take precautions to protect our job candidates and staff spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) as advised by state and national authorities.

Our staff may ask questions to visitors in the building or prior to meetings about any symptoms you may be experiencing or any potential exposure due to travel or proximity.

If you have any symptoms of fever, cough, sneezing, etc., do not go to work or to public areas, until your symptoms are gone. Contact with your health care provider is encouraged to help determine your status and next steps.

We request that job candidates please call to reschedule any in-person appointments if you are experiencing any symptoms, even if they seem mild, and contact your doctor by telephone for recommended treatment. Many activities might be handled by phone, FAX, or email so please consider alternative ways to share information (versus visiting the office). Please, however, remain in communication with us to determine how we can best meet your employment needs. Your goals and employment and training needs still exist and we want to be a resource for you in providing assistance.

All staff and visitors are asked to take the following precautions to help control the spread of COVID-19.
  • Wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. You may see hand disinfectant in various locations in the building and you are encouraged to use disinfectants.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick and avoid large crowds.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw tissues into the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
  • Do not engage in unnecessary travel.
