The Telegraph Herald is recapping changes in local COVID-19 testing and vaccination, publishing updates on Thursdays and Sundays. Saturday’s developments included:

  • Two additional cases of COVID-19 were reported in both Grant and Iowa counties in Wisconsin, while one case each was tabulated for Crawford and Lafayette counties in Wisconsin and Jo Daviess County, Ill. Because the State of Iowa only updates figures on Wednesdays, the local county totals were unchanged from the update provided in Thursday’s edition.
  • No additional related deaths were reported in the TH’s 10-county coverage area.
  • As of Saturday, 151,163 residents of the TH’s coverage area were fully vaccinated, which represents 58.4% of the area’s population that is at least 12 years old.
  • The next Dubuque County walk-in vaccination clinic will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, July 26, at Visiting Nurse Association, 660 Iowa St., in Dubuque. Vaccinations also will be available from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, July 27 to 30, in the Grand Ballroom at the Dubuque County Fair. See the full list of vaccination sites at
