MUSCATINE, Iowa–Muscatine County Public Health continues to work with the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local partners to monitor and respond to novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The virus, first detected in Wuhan, China in Dec. 2019, has since spread to other parts of the world, including the U.S.

As spring break nears, many Iowans have travel plans. IDPH and Muscatine County Public Health remind vacationers to make protecting their health part of their plans.

Whether traveling to a sunny beach, a ski resort, or enjoying a staycation, take time to learn about and prepare for health concerns. Currently, influenza poses the greatest health risk to Muscatine County residents; however, it is appropriate to take precautions against the COVID-19 virus. “The prevention for COVID-19 is similar to how you protect yourself from a variety of viruses, like influenza,” said Muscatine County Public Health Director Christy Roby Williams. “Cover coughs and sneezes, wash hands for at least 20 seconds frequently, and stay home from work or vacation when ill.”

Muscatine County Public Health continues to learn more about COVID-19 as the response progresses. Most often, person-to-person spread happens among people in close contact (about six feet) with each other.

Doctors believe spread occurs when an infected person coughs or sneezes and droplets land on another person’s nose or mouth. Therefore, when at home or traveling, avoid being near people with visible illness. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath.

IDPH posts statewide numbers of persons undergoing monitoring and testing, providing test results on their website, https://idph.iowa.gov/Emerging-Health-Issues/Novel-Coronavirus daily. Visit this web page often for up-to-date information and follow the department on Facebook at @IowaDepartmentOfPublicHealth and on Twitter at
