COVID-19 and Essential Service Personnel Guidance

By: Catherine Cownie


The Iowa Department of Public Health (“IDPH”) provided guidance last week related to COVID-19 isolation requirements for essential service personnel. 

Essential services personnel include:

  • Healthcare providers;
  • Law enforcement;
  • Fire & EMS personnel;
  • Long-Term Care personnel;
  • Residential Support Facility personnel; and
  • Public Health & Emergency Management personnel.

The guidance provides information about when essential services personnel may continue to work and what precautions may be taken.
