Anxiety. Loneliness. Anger. Sense of loss. All of these feelings are normal. And the pandemic doesn’t affect everyone the same way. You may feel fine and confident one day and overwhelmed the next. Your family members may feel things differently – and at different times – than you. That’s why COVID Recovery Iowa offers a listening ear.

The State of Iowa has received federal funding from FEMA to offer free virtual counseling and assistance to those affected, in any way, by COVID-19. COVID Recovery Iowa provides counseling, virtual activities, referrals and help finding resources to any Iowan seeking assistance or a listening ear.

With the nice weather we have been experiencing, it is important to remember the guidelines established from the CDC, Governor Reynolds and the IDPH on social distancing. Because of these guidelines, the playground equipment at the parks are CLOSED as we have no way of properly cleaning the equipment. This will include ALL playground equipment such as swings, merry-go-rounds, climbing walls etc. The parks themselves will remain open but we are relying on everyone to abide by the social distancing standards.
We are all in this together and we appreciate your cooperation!
