Iowa PBS confirms positive case of COVID-19

June 19, 2020

A member of the Iowa PBS team has tested positive for COVID-19. The staff member is under the care of a doctor and is recovering at home. Iowa PBS is following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Iowa Department of Public Health. The team member who has tested positive is not an on-air personality and does not interact with members of the public.

Iowa PBS is taking steps to protect its employees from exposure to the virus, including additional cleaning and sanitizing of its offices and studios. The June 19, 2020, edition of Iowa Press was cancelled as a cautionary measure because there was not time to arrange for an alternative recording time or studio prior to broadcast. Market to Market will record off-site for the June 19, 2020, episode.
