Community Transmission High in Dubuque County & Dubuque
The March 26 State Profile Report for Iowa lists Dubuque County as one of 38 "red" counties in Iowa for high community transmission of COVID-19. Dubuque was one of 12 "red" metro areas in the report. Transmission data in the report was from March 19-25, 2021. This reflects Dubuque County's trend of increases in new cases and serves as a reminder that, although vaccine availability and eligibility are expanding, it is critical that all residents continue to:
Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect yourself and others.
Stay 6 feet apart from others who don’t live with you.
Get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to you.
Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
