Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
A global respiratory illness was discovered in late 2019 that causes very severe illness and death in some; and very minor symptoms in others. There is still a lot to learn about the disease. The best way to protect yourself against any strain of the COVID-19 virus is to get vaccinated. Vaccine providers can be found on https://vaccinate.iowa.gov/ .
