The Iowa Department of Health stated in a release on March 12, 2020: “There is currently no known community spread of COVID-19 in Iowa and the agency is not making any recommendations to cancel planned events and mass gatherings at this time. […] The CDC has, however, provided specific guidance for high risk groups. Older adults and those with chronic health conditions should stay away from others who are sick, limit close contact with others in general, avoid crowds, and wash hands often.”
