The following chart is the Total Confirmed New Siouxland COVID-19 Cases by Week. This past week there were 168 new cases. This data is for Dakota County, NE; Plymouth and Woodbury County, IA; and Union County, SD.

*On 8/19, the Iowa Department of Public Health changed their reporting to reflect the date the test was taken and not the date the report was received. The cases effected by this change would be linked back to previous weeks.

As of Sunday, February 21, 2021, there were 23,018 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the tri-state area. Charts for April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December, and January can be found, here!

Total Deaths due to Covid-19 in the Tri-State area as of 2/21/21 are 393, up 7 deaths from last week. Woodbury County=210 (up 5 from last week), Dakota County=67 (same), Union County=39 (same as last week), and Plymouth County=77 (up 2 from last week).

**NOTE: On 12/9/20, the Iowa Dept. of Public Health (IDPH) changed how deaths are recorded to better align with what is happening nationally and are reflected in these numbers.

***NOTE: On 2/2/21, deaths were readjusted by IDPH due to the CDC readings of death certificates—deaths did not all occur during this time period.

****NOTE: On 2/10/21, Iowa changed the way it displayed information on its website. They now list the total number of positive tests instead of individuals that tested positive (cases). Therefore, Woodbury County has 14,795 and Plymouth County has 3,910. The SFS data reflects individuals and not the positive tests.

Counties include Woodbury and Plymouth, Iowa; Dakota, Nebraska; and Union, South Dakota. Composite data compiled by Source For Siouxland from Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota Health Departments, Siouxland District Health Department, and the Dakota County Health Department.
