Each day, the Telegraph Herald is recapping changes in local COVID-19 testing and recovery. Monday’s developments included:
- Dubuque County’s totals fell by one case between 5 p.m. Sunday and 5 p.m. Monday, falling to 499. Discrepancies arise when numbers are initially attributed to the wrong counties.
