While Linn County has no confirmed cases currently, community transmission has been reported in Johnson County. Due to the potential spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Linn County’s Public Health Officer is recommending the immediate suspension/cancelation of all large gatherings within the County. The Public Health Officer has defined a large gathering as any group of 20 or more people, which would include public and private services (Faith Based, Board meetings, or other community gatherings). Thank you for your cooperation in this matter and for your concern for the health and wellness of our Linn County residents. Again, this is a voluntary recommendation at this time.
