Governor Kim Reynolds identified it this morning as the Wilton Retirement Community in Muscatine County.
“More than 10% of Iowa’s total number of positive COVID-19 cases and 49% of our deaths are related to long term care outbreaks,” Reynolds said.
According to federal records, the home has 34 beds and is run by a non-profit. The governor announced the recent deaths of four elderly Iowans in Allamakee, Clayton, Johnson, and Polk Counties were linked to COVID-19.
Fifty-three Iowans have died of the virus since March. Testing has identified nearly 2000 cases in the state.
