Jake Hedgecock
Good Afternoon Iowa Warriors!
Susan Judkins
We are hearing that many states are moving to phase 1B of vaccine distribution while Iowa remains in 1A with a possibility of moving to 1B around 2/1/21. Is there an explanation why we are lagging states that have moved to their next phase?
Diane Gladson
Kari- Does a close contact to a positive case that is in the same household to the + case always have to quarantine for 14 days? Is the 7 or 10 day option available to household contacts if they are able to totally separate?
Wade Robinson
How are inmates prioritized ahead of so many other individuals?
Christopher Lee
curious why higher education was removed from category 1b and how those educators/staff will be prioritized later
Susan Shields
If a patient got 1st dose at one clinic and that location has no availability for 2nd dose, can they get 2nd at a different location or is it required to get both doses at same location.
Hollie Schlesselman

Please confirm if Water/Wastewater utilities are in category 1B. Water is an essential element in the preparation and manufacture of all food consumed. Water Treatment plants must be able to provide an uninterrupted supply to support society’s food and sanitation needs.Operation of Water and WasteWater systems require operators to share common workspaces and often work in close proximity unable to maintain social distancing. The infection of one operator and subsequent required quarantine of coworkers could shut down a treatment plant.
Pamela Rosa
do you have a contact for the IA infectious disease board to ask these questions?
Adriana Mapes
