Slow the Spread

This year has brought an immense amount of change and uncertainty to our community, and through it all, the City of Hiawatha has found a way to rally during these unprecedented times. This holiday season, we ask that Hiawatha residents and business owners heed local mandates and directives set forth by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the Linn County Health Department. While we understand the draw and desire to congregate with family and friends this holiday season, we encourage you to social distance and find creative ways to celebrate the holidays from a distance. We also continue to emphasize the importance of mask-wearing when you find yourself in public spaces and/or unable to the social distance to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Click the links below to be directed to resources from the CDC and Linn County on how to stay safe and healthy this season. We at the City of Hiawatha are wishing you and yours a Happy Holiday.
