Stay Home, Stay Safe...Continued 

The Dubuque County Public Health Team urges residents to continue to stay home as much as possible.  If/when you must go out for essentials, practice social distancing of 6-10 feet and consider wearing a mask or face covering when around others.  Limiting interaction with people outside your household is critical in limiting the spread of the virus.  The peak of the virus’s impact has not yet occurred in Iowa and we must continue to avoid all unnecessary interactions.
