Dear Panther Community,

As COVID-19 case counts continue to rapidly decline in the State of Iowa, the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) has updated the format of their COVID-19 reporting data. This updated format more closely aligns COVID-19 reporting with existing IDPH reporting standards for other respiratory viruses. UNI’s COVID-19 Response Team encourages you to review this updated site so that you can make smart decisions about your health.

IDPH continues to urge all eligible Iowans to get vaccinated and boosted.
