ALBIA, Iowa (KCRG) – Public health officials in a southern Iowa county are reporting a person in the county has been infected with the new coronavirus a second time.
The Monroe County Public Health said a person reported positive on Monday, November 2, was the county’s first clear case of a documented repeat infection. Public health officials defined this as a person who tested positive for COVID-19 in separate events with at least 90 days interval.
Initial COVID-19 infection does not necessarily provide indefinitely guaranteed immunity, officials say. They remind local residents to continue practicing away from society, wear masks in public, and limit close contact with people especially outside of your home or family.
