MUSCATINE, Iowa– In order to create a more sustainable response effort to the COVID-19 pandemic, Muscatine County Public Health (MCPH) transferred initial response and contact tracing to the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH). Muscatine County Public Health has served nearly 800 residents diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began. With schools, universities, and communities beginning to reopen, Muscatine County Public Health will focus its resources on how they can best meet the needs of the community as cases continue to rise.

Muscatine County Public Health takes pride in being a resource to serve the community and our mission is to improve the health of each citizen of Muscatine County,” said Christy Roby Williams, Director of Muscatine County Public Health. “Letting the Iowa Department of Public Health take over contact tracing, allows us to give our time and resources to the residents of Muscatine County who need it most.”

IDPH will handle the initial response and contact tracing which, comes in the form of a phone call to those who test positive for COVID-19. This phone call will cover the important information that residents need to know about testing positive and will review who they had physical contact with prior to the positive test. IDPH will then refer residents to MCPH who need more help and resources. You can continue to do your part in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing, washing your hands frequently, and always wearing a face covering when in public.

If you have needs related to testing positive for COVID-19, MCPH stands willing and ready to serve you. If you find that you need resources while you and/or your household self-isolates, please contact MCPH, who will connect you to professionals who can guide you to the resources that meet your immediate needs. These resources may include getting connected to a primary health care provider in our county, insurance access needs, medical supplies, or household items. You can contact MCPH by calling 563-263-0122. You matter to this world and you matter to the Muscatine County Public Health
Department.
