MUSCATINE, Iowa–Easter and spring holidays provide a traditional time of family gatherings, celebrations, and observances. Like many other events and activities, Muscatine County Public Health advises residents to observe these holidays differently this year. “We know many families gather together over Easter and Passover,” said Muscatine County Public Health Director Christy Roby Williams. “But, like school, shopping, and most other activities, we’re asking residents to modify their plans in light of COVID-19.”

Public Health discourages gatherings of family and friends, whether in Muscatine County, or by travel to other states. When people come together, the chances of spreading the COVID-19 virus grow. Although people with symptoms of the virus (cough, fever and shortness of breath) obviously should not visit other people, even those should do the without symptoms should do same: “We are learning that some people with coronavirus don’t have any symptoms, and that even those who later develop symptoms can pass the virus to others before showing symptoms. Even people who do not feel ill should stay home,” said Roby Williams.

Families and friends are encouraged to find alternate ways to observe holidays and to stay connected. Try Skype, Zoom, FaceTime or other electronic means of connecting, as well as phone calls and letters.


As of today, April 9, Muscatine County has 70 cases of COVID-19. The Muscatine County Health Department continues to work closely with the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), and other state and local partners to respond to this ongoing pandemic. For up-to-date information on COVID-19, visit the IDPH webpage at https://idph.iowa.gov/Emerging-Health-Issues/Novel-Coronavirus and follow the department on Facebook at @IowaDepartmentOfPublicHealth and on Twitter at @IAPublicHealth
