For several months, Linn County Public Health has issued weekly COVID-19 Status Updates to keep the community informed of COVID-19 vaccine rollout and other important information related to COVID-19. Due to increasing vaccination rates, decreasing test positivity rate and hospitalizations, the May 27 update will be the final scheduled update. Linn County Public Health will send out COVID-19 Status Updates as needed. To review all Status Updates, visit the COVID-19 Status Update page.
Linn County Supervisors lifted the Linn County mask mandate on Monday, May 24. Local businesses and private property owners may still require customers/visitors to wear masks. Masks continue to be required on public transportation per federal order.
All Iowans age 12 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
For help with getting a vaccine:
Linn County will not accept COVID-19 vaccine for the week of May 31. Linn County Public Health did not take vaccine for the coming week due to decreasing demand for vaccine, and due to many local providers receiving large amounts of federally allocated vaccine.
*Note in the May 21 status update, the graph reflected percentage of total population that had begun vaccination, not fully vaccinated status. The May 27 report reflects the accurate percentage of population that is fully vaccinated.
