MUSCATINE, Iowa–The Muscatine County Department of Public Health today announced the first death associated with novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the county. The middle aged (41-60 years) female had underlying conditions.
“We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to this individual’s family,” said Muscatine
County Public Health Director Christy Roby Williams. “Muscatine County Public Health 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.”
If you think you may have had contact with someone with COVID-19, you should self-isolate for 14 days. If, during that time, you develop symptoms of COVID-19, you
should call your healthcare provider before going to the office.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Cough.
  • Fever.
  • Shortness of breath.

All residents are encouraged to:

  • Stay home when ill.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow/upper arm.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Practice social distancing by staying away from groups of people and maintaining a six-foot distance from other individuals.

Health professionals believe coronaviruses primarily spread through respiratory droplets, which means to people generally have to stand within 6 feet of a contagious person and have droplets land on them to get the infection.
