The moratorium that was scheduled to expire on June 30, 2021 is now extended through July 31, 2021. The CDC noted that this is intended to be the final extension of the moratorium.

To help older Iowans navigate the scheduling process, IDPH is partnering with 211 to provide a dedicated team of vaccine navigators who will schedule appointments for Iowans age 65 and older who are unable to do so because of technology barriers. This 211 vaccine navigator service will be available starting the week of March 8.
IDPH is encouraging Iowans to remain patient as more vaccine arrives in the weeks and months ahead. It is also critical to continue practicing the mitigation measures that can slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

While the current COVID-19 crisis has brought out the best in people, the situation has also brought out the worst in some people. We are hearing some disturbing reports of utility scams throughout the state. If you are called by someone offering help that's too good to be true, hang up and call the utility directly. Use an Internet search to find the phone number for your utility provider; do not rely on a phone number given to you by the caller. For more tips and information, visit the Iowa Utilities Board's website at https://iub.iowa.gov/…/beware-utility-scams-during-covid-19…
