SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Health officials confirmed two additional COVID-19 deaths and 50 new cases in Woodbury County, Tuesday morning.

SDHD says the new case count and deaths they reported Tuesday morning are the number of new cases and deaths that were reported to them Monday.

The Iowa COVID-19 dashboard tallies 2,342 total cases of COVID-19 in Woodbury County including 996 recoveries.

Governor Kim Reynolds announced Tuesday, the state of Iowa dashboard for COVID-19 is now reporting data in real-time, so it is continually updated.

You will notice that some of the usual data points that we report are not included in the table on the SDHD website today. SDHD is determining whether we will be continuing to report out our numbers each morning moving forward, since the data is now available in real time and anything that we provide will be quickly outdated. It is difficult to report on a moving target.

SDHD acknowledges the information they report may not match the dashboard exactly since they may be pulling information from different sources.
