A status report of monitoring and testing of COVID19 in Iowa is provided by IDPH and can be found at In addition, a public hotline has been established for Iowans with questions about COVID-19. The line is available 24/7 by calling 2-1-1 or 1-800-244-7431. The state of Iowa will begin sharing the number of negative tests conducted at outside labs soon.

Iowans who have traveled recently for business or spring break vacations, whether internationally or domestically outside of Iowa, should strongly consider self-isolating for 14 days. This will support Iowa's ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and limit the introduction of the virus from other points of travel.

Iowa has implemented many provisions to emphasize social distancing, and self-isolation after travel is another measure we can take to slow the spread of the virus and avoid quickly overburdening our healthcare system.

As of 3/25/20, the following is an overview of actions taken by Iowa and surrounding states concerning disaster declarations, shelter in place orders, school closures, business closures, and travel restrictions.

Winneshiek County Public Health was notified of an additional positive case of COVID 19 in Winneshiek County late
yesterday. This person has already recovered and had been in isolation.

Winneshiek County Public Health and our community health partners are stressing the importance of STAYING HOME. This does slow the spread.

If you must go out, MAINTAIN the 6 feet physical distancing - about the length of a twin bed.

Send one {1) person out to go to the grocery store to get essentials for ONE week.

Utilize social media to connect socially by video streaming, Facebook live, Zoom and other apps. We know you need to socially connect but it must be at a distance for all.

Public notification of any additional positives will be released daily on the Iowa Department of Public Health website.

If you have health concerns with respiratory symptoms, you NEED to call your providers first before going to the hospital or clinics.

If you stay home NOW, we can have the summer together.

Thank you for helping to keep our communities safe.

Governor Reynolds has put out a "State of Public Health Disaster Emergency", and the DOT part of it (excerpt
below) mimics the federal one (below).

Basically if it's driving to deliver supplies during this COVID
crisis, drivers can go over their hours of service, but the drug testing and breath alcohol testing are still required.
