Today the office of Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds released the lastest COVID-19 cases in Iowa. Iowa is reporting 52 more cases, down from yesterday, and 2 death.

With today’s 52 cases, Iowa has now reported a total of 549, the state has also reported 9 deaths as a result of COVID-19. There have been a total of 7,304 negative tests to date, which includes testing reported by the State Hygienic Lab and other labs.

Listening Area Update – Earlier this week the Iowa Department of Public Health said even in counties that have no confirmed cases, like a number of our listening area towns and counties, you should use caution as if there was. The IDPH says more counties are added daily, so even if the virus hasn’t been confirmed in areas, it could still be in those unconfirmed areas. Today Cerro Gordo reported another positive case as there numbers near double digits. Mitchell joins the new county list in Iowa reporting their first two cases. Additionally, Freeborn County, MN has confirmed their first two cases as well to join the growing new county list.
