Act As if There Are More COVID-19 Cases Than Are Confirmed

Tests to confirm COVID-19 are extremely limited in the state of Iowa. These tests are limited to hospitalized patients with no other diagnosis, older adults with fever and respiratory symptoms, those with immunodeficiency, those who live in congregate spaces like dorms or prisons, and essential services personnel.

Chief Operating Officer of the Waverly Health Center Heidi Solheim says we should treat this as if more people have COVID-19 than have been reported.
