Monday COVID update — four new north-central Iowa COVID deaths, active case count creeping higher

MASON CITY — Four new COVID-19 related deaths were reported over the weekend in north-central Iowa as the number of active COVID cases in our listening area continues to slowly climb.

In the time period between midday Friday and midday Monday, two new deaths were reported in Kossuth County while single deaths were reported in Floyd and Hancock counties. That brings the COVID death total since the start of the pandemic in our ten-county listening area up to 390.

46 new COVID cases were identified in our area between midday Friday and midday Monday while 29 new recoveries were reported. That moves the active case count for the listening area up from 1677 on Friday to 1693 today.
