LEE COUNTY – The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Lee County Health Department have identified one additional case of COVID-19 in the county, an older adult who is currently in isolation. This makes four confirmed cases in Lee County to date.
The Iowa Department of Public Health has created a new Coronavirus Dashboard on their website, https://coronavirus.iowa.gov. We encourage interested residents to check this website if interested in knowing county testing data, confirmed case counts, and other useful information.
Reminder all residents should:
Stay home as much as possible. Leave only for essential errands like groceries or getting medication. When you run these errands, send only one person from the household, if possible and consider wearing a mask.
Maintain at least a six-foot physical distance apart from others outside your home when possible.
Stay home when even mildly ill (the kind of illness that normally wouldn’t prevent you from your everyday activities)
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow/upper arm.
Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Call your medical provider first if you need medical care and notify them of your symptoms.
