COVID-19 and Iowa's State Correctional Population

On this page, we’re tracking the statistics, news, and policy decisions relevant to the impact of coronavirus, or COVID-19, on Iowa’s state prisons and county jails. Our mission is to provide policymakers and the public with information that will assist with the prevention and containment of COVID-19 in Iowa’s criminal justice system.

NOTE

Due to the ever-changing nature of the coronavirus, we cannot guarantee that we are providing the most up-to-date information. We will update this page as quickly as possible, but our staff resources and time are limited. Please contact Ethan Rogers (ethan-rogers@uiowa.edu) with any corrections or updates for us to share. Thank you.
