(Guthrie Center) As of 8:00 AM, March 17th, 2020, Adair and Guthrie County will be launching a new joint website www.adairguthriecountycovid.org as a resource for all of your COVID-19 questions. This site will be updated daily with the most recent press releases, recommendations, screening questions if you are sick, as well as links to other reliable resources to help answer your questions.
In a time of uncertainty, social media becomes a platform for rumors and misinformation. “We are aware of misinformation about COVD-19 both locally, across Iowa and nationally,” said Guthrie County Public Health Director, Jotham Arber. “It’s important for Adair & Guthrie County residents to rely on trusted sources of information like the CDC, IDPH and our public health agency.”
