WHEREAS, the numbers of positive cases of COVID 19 have risen in Muscatine County over the past 21 days

NOW, THERFORE, the Muscatine County Board of Health strongly encourages Muscatine County residents and all visitors to the County to wear face coverings while in public around other people who don’t live in your household, especially when social distancing measures cannot be maintained. Further, the board urges effective communication strategies to residents and visitors on how to obtain a mask for use.
