Winneshiek County Public Health Director Krista Vanden Brink says the two new people "are currently self- isolating and managing their symptoms well." 

Vanden Brink is reminding people to continue to practice good hand hygiene, to wear a mask when leaving the house, to physically distance themselves from others and to limit trips for necessities.
