  1. Call To Order

Per Iowa Code, Chapter 21.8, Electronic Meetings, the Tama County Board of Health will conduct meetings via zoom or by phone conference due to circumstances where such a meeting in person is impossible or impractical.  With 3 members of the BOH being medical providers and/or EMS providers in the county it is impractical to meet due to heightened potential public health risks related to COVID-19 including continued virus activity in our State, Tama County having only a 47% vaccination rate and inability to comply with mitigation efforts such as spacing in our regular meeting space.

Tama County Health Needs Assessment Survey
Every five years in Iowa, local boards of health lead a community-wide discussion about their community's health needs and decide what can be done about them.

The following survey questions are based on six factors important for the health and well-being of everyone in your community. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey and help the board determine what is needed in your county and to set an order for action by indicating the level of importance of these service needs.

Please complete the survey only once.
