Another Woodbury County resident has died from the coronavirus.  According to Siouxland District Health, the man was 61 – 80 years old.  The death raised Woodbury County's total to 38.  As of this morning there were 17 new confirmed cases to COVID-19 in the county, with a total of 2, 931. 

Iowa was reporting another four COVID-19 deaths since the state's tally yesterday, bringing the Iowa's statewide total to 606. There are 21,919 confirmed cases of COVID-19, in Iowa.  That is an increase of 330 since yesterday. 

WinnaVegas Casino Resort, 1500 330th St., announced that it will reopen and resume casino operations at 50% capacity, beginning at 10 a.m. Friday.

The reopening process will be conducted in phases with select gaming machines and other amenities remaining closed in the initial phase. Time between phases will be based upon how well guests are adhering to safety guidelines and protocols set forth by casino management.

Sioux City’s Public Library is beginning a phased plan for reopening their facilities.

The first step is a week away, with contactless curbside pickup at their Perry Creek Branch Library beginning June 15th.

Library users will once again be able to place holds on items in the online catalog and, after staff has filled hold requests, will be contacted by the Library to schedule a pickup time at the Perry Creek Branch.

Appointments will be available Monday through Saturday. All circulating items will be placed in quarantine before their next check out to ensure the health and safety of patrons.

Book drops at all three branches remain closed until after the initial wave of pickups so staff can manage the influx.
