Governor Kim Reynolds at her news conference on Friday announced 118 more positive cases of COVID-19 in Iowa, bringing the total number in the state to 1,388.

Two more deaths were announced, both in Linn County. 31 Iowans have now died due to COVID-19.

119 Iowans are hospitalized with COVID-19, and 506 have recovered. The recovery percentage in Iowa is 36.

There have been 14,565 negative COVID-19 tests in Iowa.

Reynolds announced that she's created the “Feeding Iowa Task Force” to raise awareness of hunger-related issues, identify potential gaps in the system, connect resources to make sure Iowans have food on their tables, and make sure Iowans know where to go to get help.

Go to your nearest food pantry if you're in immediate need, or go to coronavirus.iowa.gov for food assistance information.

Reynolds thanked several businesses and organizations for their donations to food banks and meal programs. Tyson Foods has donated 200-thousand pounds of products, which equals eight-million meals.
