Indianola has two additional cases of COVID-19 in the city for a total of 69, while the city's fire district gained one, climbing to 15, according to Indianola city manager Ryan Waller Monday.

Notifications of new cases comes from the state Department of Public Health to Warren County public health and then to first responders who might have to handle someone who tested positive, which can slow local reporting.

According to the Iowa Department of Public Health web site, 63 people in Warren County were tested between 6 p.m. Sunday and 6 p.m. Monday.

The number of cases of COVID-19 in Warren County went up five Monday, giving the county 242 cases total.

The number of people recovered from the virus in the county went up by six. That statistic is not broken down by zip code.

The Indianola Independent Advocate will report the county's case count as of 6 p.m. Sunday-Friday in order to have consistent amounts of time between updates.
