Effective April 1, 2022, Linn County Public Health (LCPH) will end reporting COVID-19 metrics and case data at the county level on its website. At the time of this announcement (March 29, 2022), case data is still available on the Iowa Department of Public Health website.

“As long as COVID is with us, we will continue to monitor this information, working with our partners in the medical community, and share it when appropriate,” said Dr. Pramod Dwivedi, director of Linn County Public Health. “However, with a decline in the number of cases and hospitalizations, coupled with the availability of vaccines and therapeutics, regular updating and reporting of this data is no longer necessary.”

The Linn County Public Health website will continue to report the community COVID-19 level as provided by the CDC and share links for resources. Persons with questions about mitigation measures, testing, and vaccines can still call LCPH at 319-892-6097. COVID-19 vaccine is available statewide, and LCPH urges all eligible Iowans to get vaccinated for COVID-19 and to get a booster when eligible. Iowans who still have questions about the vaccine should speak to their health care provider.
