New Quarantine Guidelines To Be Announced Today

Governor Kim Reynolds is expected to announce new guidelines for quarantine for people who may have been exposed to COVID-19.

The changes to the quarantine procedures may allow some shortening and/or elimination for some individuals exposed, if those involved are ALL appropriately wearing face coverings.

These new guidelines will most likely affect the amount of students quarantined through contact tracing if a student or teacher tests positive.

Delaware County Public Health expects to receive formal guidance from the Iowa Department of Public Health after the announcement is made today.
