Dubuque Emergency Shelters

The Dubuque County Board of Supervisors received an update Wednesday on the city’s emergency shelters to isolate people who test positive for COVID-19. Alexis Steger, Housing and Community Development Director, says several residents have been using them. Steger says there are two shelters in the community being used, with total capacity of 81 people. People who are unable to isolate at home safely are candidates to be put in the shelters. The city is using federal funding for the shelters that offer 24 hour services. Steger says with additional testing in Dubuque this week the numbers who may need to be sheltered could be expected to increase.
