DES MOINES – The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) has been notified of 22 additional positive cases of Iowans with COVID-19, for a total of 90 positive cases. There have been  1,215 negative tests conducted at the State Hygienic Lab to date.

According to IDPH, the locations and age ranges of the 22 individuals include:

  • Cerro Gordo County, 2 adults (18-40 years)
  • Dallas County, 1 older adult (61-80 years)
  • Dubuque County, 2 middle-aged adults (41-60 years)
  • Harrison County, 2 older adults (61-80 years)
  • Johnson County, 2 adults (18-40 years), 1 middle-aged (41-60 years), 2 older (61-80 years)
  • Kossuth County, 1 adult (18-40 years)
  • Linn County, 1 middle age adult (41-60 years)
  • Poweshiek County, 1 elderly adult (81 years or older)
  • Scott County, 1 middle-aged adult (41-60 years)
  • Sioux County, 1 older adult (61-80 years)
  • Tama County, 2 adults (18-40 years), 1 middle-aged adult (41-60 years)
  • Washington County, 1 middle-aged adult (41-60 years)
  • Woodbury County, 1 middle-aged adult (41-60 years)

A status report of monitoring and testing of COVID19 in Iowa is provided by IDPH and can be found here. 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 soon begin sharing the number of negative tests conducted at outside labs.

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.

Gov. Reynolds will hold a press conference today at 2:30 p.m. The press conference will be livestreamed and posted in full on Governor Reynolds’ Facebook Page.

    The “Smith Mundt Act” was reinstated, exactly how do people know what is real or propaganda – the “Smith Mundt Act” is license to lie to the public, how does that work – reading and listening to lies from leaders and believing everything is true that they are programming you to think, easy to control a fearful society, order out of chaos – Their MO – 1.) Problem/they create, 2.) Reaction/from public 3.) Solution/they have already planned and ready to go – Remember Jesus did not give us the spirit of fear , that is the spirit they are trying to instill in us

    in two weeks it will disappear – no they have a plane lined up for that also – forced vaccinations and the vaccinations contain aborted baby stem cells, nano technology with tracking capabilities people will be tracked, applications that will coincide with 5G millimeter waves – that can have beam forming waves that will be able attach to the body for tracking, 5G uses the 60 millimeter wave that is the oxygen molecule 60 GH, wake up and study swiftly ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in to all truth, these people hate Jesus and they are persecuting us right in front of our face, and yet people are still wandering/following/believing them

    Damn the Governor is acting way faster then these other states. The closures announced today started less then 72 hours in other big population areas. Great Job! Keep the proactive common sense approach moving forward at lightening speed. It is coming. Stay at home.
