The Iowa Department of Public Health today announced the first death associated with novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Cedar County. The individual was an older adult between 61-80 years of age. We wish to extend our sympathy to this individual’s loved ones. Cedar County Public Health, Cedar County Emergency Management, and all of our key partners throughout the county and state continue to work to limit the spread and impact of this virus in our communities.

The total number of confirmed cases identified in Cedar County is currently 36. There is a discrepancy with the statewide map which reports 39 cases. IDPH expects to correct this error tomorrow.

ALL Cedar County residents are encouraged to continue current prevention practices, including:
• Maintain social distance of at least 6 feet from others who do not reside within your own home

As things begin to open up throughout the month of May, we encourage you to be mindful of prevention efforts while you support your local businesses. With increased exposure, it will be more important than ever to have a plan when you are out. Be thoughtful about which entrance you will use, how you will distance yourself from others and how you can minimize contact with shared surfaces. Make sure to bring supplies along to sanitize your hands often and wear a mask whenever possible. As always, please stay home when you are sick. The CDC has identified the following COVID-19 symptoms to watch for: fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills or shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell.

Parents are asking during this time: " Should I bring my child in for their immunizations?"
We know these are uncertain times. But it is important that infants, toddlers and children receive their immunizations.

Cedar County Public Health is here to help with immunizations in a safe manner at our clinic or we encourage you to call your child's doctor to see what precautions they are taking for your child to receive their vaccinations.
Vaccinations are available at CCPH for children who meet one of the following criteria:
*Insured by Medicaid
*Insured by Blue Cross Blue Shield
*Do not have insurance
*Have Insurance that does not pay for vaccines
Vaccinations will be given by appointment only, please call
