9-29-20 Updated Close Contact Definition

September 29, 2020

Governor Reynolds has announced a change to the definition of a close contact for COVID-19 cases for the purposes of contact tracing and quarantine.

The Black Hawk County Health Department strongly encourages the correct use of face coverings, and to continue to practice social distancing. Although with the new close contact definition face coverings are considered to prevent exposures, layered approaches remain important to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19 as much as possible. Please continue to practice all control measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by staying home when you are sick or been exposed to COVID-19, practicing regular hand hygiene, covering coughs and sneezes, wearing a face covering, and practicing social distancing of 6ft between others.
