The Indianola Community School District has launched a dashboard tracking the number of positive COVID-19 cases in the school district, which it is updating weekly.

The district posted on Sept. 21 that it had between zero and five cases among students and between zero and five cases among staff. According to the dashboard, any case counts below six must be reported as a range. If there are more than six cases, the district can report specific numbers.

Find the dashboard here.

The Iowa Department of Public Health web site reported that Warren County added five cases of COVID-19 between 6 p.m. Wednesday and 6 p.m. Thursday. The site reports that 110 people were tested for the virus during that period. Five people were reported as recovered.

Neither the Warren County Sheriff’s Department nor the city of Indianola provided any daily case counts for local communities on Thursday. City manager Ryan Waller had reported on Sept. 21 that there had been 227 cases since the pandemic began within the Indianola city limits and another 63 cases in the city’s fire district.

Warren County continued in the yellow phase of the Harvard Global Health Institute’s risk assessment. As of Tuesday, the most recent date statistics were available, the county was averaging 3.6 cases per day and 6.9 cases per 100,000. There are 44 Iowa counties in the red phase and another 44 counties in orange. Warren County is one of 11 counties in yellow.
