Buena Vista County Public Health and Home Care

Buena Vista County

A top health official in northwest Iowa retired on Monday after working more than 23-years with Buena Vista County Public Health and Home Care. Pam Bogue worked first as a nurse and then administrator for the county health department. She previously worked in long-term care facility administration. Bogue talked to Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer about the past year of COVID-19, including mitigation efforts and Tyson Foods.

Coming up on the exchange, we have a wrap up of the 2020 legislative session with Republican Siouxland State Senator Jim Carlin and Siouxland Democratic State Represenative Chris Hall. Carlin and other Republicans voted for a budget that is basically status quo in the age of COVID 19.

However, Chris Hall says republicans basically handed over decisions about the 8 billion dollar state budget to the governor and her staff.
