“For Winneshiek County, any organization that is going to immediately run out of PPE in the next seven to 10 days may formally request PPE from me. All organizations must continue to try and procure their own PPE and cannot solely rely on me,” Snyder said Monday.

A status report of monitoring and testing of COVID19 in Iowa is provided by IDPH and can be found at idph.iowa.gov/Emerging-Health-Issues/Novel-Coronavirus. 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.
