Public health officials are reporting another 85 new cases of COVID-19 in Iowa, raising the statewide number of 699.

The latest figures from the Iowa Department of Public Health, released Friday around 11 AM, show 700 people have tested positive for the coronavirus. No new deaths were reported, so the number from the pandemic in Iowa remains at 11.

Of the new confirmed cases, nine were from area counties. Five of them -- more than half -- came from Tama County, where three adults between the ages of 18 and 40, one adult between the ages of 41 and 60, and one adult between the ages of 61 and 80 all tested positive.

Fayette County reported its third case, an adult between the ages of 41 and 60. Allamakee, Clayton and Marshall counties each had one additional case -- all adults between the ages of 18 and 40.

The numbers show at least one correction over the past 24 hours, with Delaware County remain one of the few in northeast Iowa not to have any known positive cases. On Thursday, state officials reported Delaware County's first case, but later learned that the victim's address was reported incorrectly.

The virus is now present in 65 of Iowa's 99 counties. According to health officials, the 699 confirmed cases include 374 females and 225 males.

State health officials said 74 people are hospitalized with symptoms of COVID-19, while another 46 are recovering from the virus after being discharged. The numbers also show that 347 Iowans who tested positive were never hospitalized.

To date, 8,764 people have tested negative for the virus in Iowa.

In addition, a public hotline has been established for Iowans with questions about COVID-19. The line is available 24-7 by calling 2-1-1 or 1-800-244-7431.

Iowans who have traveled recently for business or spring break vacations, whether internationally or domestically outside of Iowa, should strongly consider self-isolating for 14 days. This will support the state's ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and limit the introduction of the virus from other points of travel, IDPH officials said.
