And at IC Compassion, we are still a Mask of Wellness member, and masks are required for anyone entering our building. This restriction will remain in place until our public health officials give us the all clear. We care about your health and the health of everyone in our community!
Wear your mask and come on in out of the cold to IC Compassion for our Food Pantry, immigration services, our new computer lab and our NEST for ICCSD students!

We are very excited about teaming up with MedQuarter Regional Medical District in Cedar Rapids! The MedQuarter aims to become the first-ever COVID-Conscious District by having 80% of businesses in the District pledge to follow Mask of Wellness guidelines. Thank you MedQuarter!
Our community's health and economic success aren't mutually exclusive if we work together and are conscious of the choices we make. That's the idea behind Mask of Wellness, a nationwide strategic approach to opening society in a manner promoting wellness socially, physically, and economically. The MedQuarter Regional Medical District is teaming up with Mask of Wellness to encourage and highlight businesses in the MedQuarter that have pledge to follow Mask of Wellness guidelines. The program was started in Iowa City by two doctors and supports re-opening in a safe, "COVID conscious" manner by focusing on three basic elements:
1. Masks are worn in all areas of the work environment.
2. Hygiene is practiced, both for hands and surfaces.
3. Signs of illness are recognized and screened for.
Our goal is to make the MedQuarter the first "COVID conscious" district in the country by having at least 80% of businesses participate in the program. We'll continue to share with you as businesses certify in order to continue to provide you the most up to date information possible so you can shop, dine, and enjoy safely! Head to www.themedq.com/maskofwellness to find a list of businesses committed to the program's guidelines and more information on how to get involved!

"Healthcare delivery is such a vital part of our community's economy and culture, so I follow the advice of our medical leadership. Listening to doctors and medical professionals, I learned how important it is to continue to respect public health guidance to reduce exposures. When working with home buyers and sellers, I use best practices when showing homes such as keeping visitors to a minimum, maintaining social distancing, and universal masking when I interact with home buyers or sellers. Taking smart precautions, we're able to continue to help people in their home moves and to carry on with their lives during the COVID19 pandemic." - Tundi Brady Realtor with Urban Acres Real Estate
