Please see the updated CDC guidance summarized below:
Persons who think or know they have COVID-19 and have symptoms should isolate until:
§ At least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
§ At least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and
§ Symptoms have improved
Persons who test positive for COVID-19 and do not have symptoms should isolate until:
§ 10 days have passed since test
CDC discourages using the test-based strategy except as described below
People with severe, advanced immunosuppression should isolate until:
Previously diagnosed with COVID-19 have since recovered and remain asymptomatic:
· Retesting isNOT recommended within three months after the date of symptom onset (or date of test if asymptomatic persons) for the initial COVID-19 infection
· Quarantine is NOT recommended in the event of close contact with an infected person during the three month time period, as long as the previously diagnosed person remains asymptomatic (i.e., has not developed symptoms of a new illness)
In persons who develop new symptoms consistent with COVID-19 during the 3 months after the date of initial symptom onset (if an alternative etiology cannot be identified by a provider) they should be clinically evaluated as appropriate and re-testing should be considered if there is not an alternative diagnosis.
o The symptomatic person should be isolated again, if symptoms developed within 14 days after close contact with a new COVID case.
· If your symptoms worsen and you feel the need to see a medical provider, please call them first to determine the treatment plan and visit method that are best for you.

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…
