Johnson County, Iowa,

home of Iowa City, has now 32.8 positive COVID19 cases daily. And returning university students are filling the bars downtown, maskless. . .

2. It's my home, too,

though I see very little of the town these days.
Thank you for your kind words.

4. I'm in a town not far from IC and in a different county.

I went to undergrad at UI.....

Wishing you well; we're all in this together.

3. Johnson County case and death curves not looking so good....

As of 8/23/2020:

Johnson County, IA Cases curve:



Johnson County, IA Deaths curve:


Curves copied from: https://infection2020.com/

Looks like things were improving until around mid-June where a sudden rise began (Trump re-opening?) and then another recent sudden rise in mid-August. The last one likely due to some change in habits or policy in early August or late July.

Welcome to DU and good luck with staying safe and healthy!......

5. Iowa City

This is my fifth incarnation in Iowa City, since 1993 this time. I live far enough outside of town that all the drunk students and the IC po po are not a bother. I am glad to connect, even in some small way, with other DU'ers who live in this blue bastion immersed in a sea of red. Down with Covid Kim and Phoney Joni! Let's get Theresa Greenfield and Rita Hart in the Congress this year :-D
