MercyOne Dyersville Senior Care COVID Outbreak

Iowa has hit a new, all-time high for the number of outbreaks at long term care facilities, including 1 in Dubuque County. As of this morning, there’s now outbreaks at 50 facilities across the state, with 10 added in just the last 24 hours. In eastern Iowa, there’s now a total of 13 facilities with outbreaks. One just added was MercyOne Dyersville Senior Care. The Governor’s Office says because of the additional testing, more staff at facilities are coming back with positive cases. Currently, the state’s coronavirus website does not indicate whether positive cases at a facility are among staff or residents. For a facility to reach outbreak status, at least three residents or staff must test positive.
