Information & Resources for COVID-19
As we go through the process of lifting restrictions and discovering what our new normal will look like, it will be more important than ever to get clear, accurate, and timely information out to Iowans. Please consider taking our communications survey to help us better understand how to effectively share information with you.
Below is some information that we’ve found to be helpful, with links to reputable websites that are kept up to date.
I am available to help you get connected with the resources you need or get answers to your questions. Please continue to make me aware of any challenges you face in getting the support you expect from the state agencies.
You may reach me through the website's contact form or by email at Dave.Williams@legis.iowa.gov.
I can also be reached by phone or through our social media.
Please help protect everyone by continuing to social distance, washing your hands frequently, and staying home if you feel ill.
