Taking Precautions During COVID-19
Based on CDC recommendations, all patients and visitors who are coming into The Iowa Clinic for appointments are required to wear masks or homemade face coverings. This proactive measure is designed to keep you safe and help reduce potential exposure of infectious individuals with COVID-19 to others.
