There's been some minor adjustments by the Iowa Department of Public Health of its COVID-19 statistics.

One case which had been assigned to Winneshiek County and three cases which had been assigned to Chicasaw County have now been deducted from the county totals and listed under other counties.

The changes mean there have been 211 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the six northeasternmost counties in Iowa.  Allamakee County now has 116 cases; Clayton County remains at 30; Fayette County remains at 25; Winneshiek now has 20 cases; Howard County remains at 12 confirmed cases; and Chickasaw County has 8 confirmed cases.

Statewide cases are up by 299, resulting in a total of 15,595 Covid-19 cases.
