DBQ County COVID-19 Death

The Dubuque County Public Health Incident Management Team was notified Tuesday afternoon by the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) that a Dubuque County resident with COVID-19 has passed away.  The individual was an older adult (61-80 years).  No additional information about the individual will be provided. Patrice Lambert, executive director of the Dubuque County Public Health Department, says “This death is a tragedy and a reminder for all of the seriousness of this virus. However, it is also important that everyone understands that this does not mean Dubuque County is more at risk for COVID-19 spread or deaths than other areas.” Lambert said Dubuque County public health officials continue to work with the IDPH and local healthcare providers and other key partners to limit the spread and impact of the virus locally and across the state.
