[ARCHIVED] 3/20/20 COVID-19 Update

3/20/20 COVID-19 Update

Windsor Heights City staff continues to be embedded with other metro communities in addressing needs and planning for the continued COVID-19 response. Our team is attending daily briefings to ensure we are up to date on the latest information and to ensure we are able to pass along important, daily updates to you – our community. 

As of today (Friday, March 20, 2020) at 8:00 am, Polk County has a total of six confirmed cases of COVID-19. Each day, we learn more about the virus and the response to the virus. Yesterday, we learned those with symptoms should take Tylenol versus Ibuprofen as Ibuprofen suppresses the immune system. We also learned today the Polk County Health Department is putting out updated video information on their YouTube channel, click here to watch their videos, which are a great source for up-to-date information.

Finally, we have fielded some questions about tenants being worried they will be kicked out of their homes due to late rent. Governor Reynolds signed additional State Public Health Emergency Declaration today which includes provisions that temporarily suspends some evictions under the Iowa Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act or the Manufactured Home Communities or Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act in certain circumstances. For those who have additional legal questions or need additional legal advice, Iowa Legal Aid is a great resource and you can reach Iowa Legal Aid at (515) 243-1193. 

Windsor Heights will remain engaged with our metro partners to keep our residents, businesses and visitors up to date on this ever changing situation. Be sure to follow our social media channels for additional information. We also thank our community and businesses for remaining calm as we all continue to work through the pandemic.
