The following is a chronology of the Department of Human Services’ (DHS’) response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. DHS is taking a number of steps to ensure the safety of our team members and of those we serve while ensuring continued access to critical services.Before any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the State of Iowa, DHS began analyzing our operations across the agency and conferring with other states. Our leadership team quickly mobilized to assess our emergency response protocols and tailor those plans to this uniquepandemic. Things progressed very quickly, as did our response. (Author abstract)
