NAEMT NATIONAL SURVEY RESULTS
Click here for the NAEMT National Survey results regarding the impact of COVID19 on EMS Agencies.


From IEMSA Medical Director
(4.15.2020) These protocols and guidance documents were composed for several EMS services who share common EMS medical directors across northeast Iowa, working in collaboration (Dr. L. Fagre, Dr. W. Fangman, Dr. C. Hill, and Dr. C. Joylani), and these are approved for use by their services only. They are posted here for reference, should other EMS services find them useful. These are not official State documents/procedures nor are they necessarily endorsed by the Iowa EMS Association.

Important COVID-19 Links to Monitor
For critical information relating to the Covid-19 virus,  IDPH recommends that you regularly monitor information provided by the following organizations:

If a patient tests positive for COVID-19 through a national reference laboratory, the ordering healthcare provider must notify IDPH immediately prior to patient notification by calling the Iowa Department of Public Healthís Center for Acute Disease Epidemiology (CADE) at 800-362-2736, see COVID-19 Testing Framework for Iowa.

Iowans can call 211 for information and to have questions answered about COVID-19.
