DES MOINES, Iowa — An employee at a metro orthopedic clinic tested positive for COVID-19.
Iowa Ortho tells Channel 13 that the employee was not symptomatic while on site. Iowa Ortho did not say which location the employee worked. All other employees have been notified.
“We are proceeding with the utmost caution as the safety and well-being of our patients and staff is our top priority,” Iowa Ortho said in a statement.

Iowa Ortho is now working with Iowa health officials to determine its next step.
