COVID-19 Update
June 22, 2020
You’ll see some changes to this newsletter starting June 19th. Because activity surrounding COVID-19 at the state and federal level has slowed, you will receive a key statistics newsletter Monday, Wednesday and Friday, to allow you to continue to track COVID-19 by the numbers, and a more comprehensive newsletter Tuesday and Thursday.
IowaBio wants to provide our members useful information during the COVID-19 pandemic. This newsletter compiles information on state, federal and industry action to combat the virus and its impacts.

If your company is helping respond to COVID-19, IowaBio wants to know about it. Please, send any information about what your biotechnology company or organization is doing to help, to Jessica Hyland at

If IowaBio can assist you in getting information out, connecting with public officials, or support your company in another way, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Past IowaBio COVID-19 Update newsletters are now available at and can be found under the Industry News tab on the IowaBio website.
