COVID-19 Information and Resources


We are in unprecedented times with the COVID-19 pandemic. Emergency Management Agency Commission Vice Chair Mayor Louise From and Police Chief Troy Kelsay participate in phone meetings with the Johnson County Emergency Management Commission Team. The team is made up of elected officials, community leaders, department representatives, and local agencies across the county and state who are working to keep everyone safe. The team is coordinating county-wide needs such as medical supplies, hospital beds, essential staff, medicine, testing, volunteer help, long-term-care facilities, school facilities, shelter needs, child care, animal care, meals, and more.

The City of University Heights greatly appreciates the care-givers and essential workers who are at work to keep us all safe. 

We all have a role to play. Stay home. When you go out, wear a mask and stay 6 feet from others. Review public health information sources and remain up-to-date on the COVID-19 pandemic. The following links provide current information from our local, county, state, and federal partners.
