On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description


The Family Caregivers of Mercy is holding a session on Long Distance Caregiving. Caring for someone living with a chronic condition can be challenging.  It can be even more challenging when that person lives in a different state. Hear from a panel of caregivers who are or have been long distance caregivers.  Learn the challenges they have faced and what worked for them.  Come discuss how to identify needs, connect to resources and find support for the person you are providing care.                                                              

Registration is required. To register or to request caregiving assistance at the while attending this event, please let us know 48 hours in advance by calling (319) 221-8866 or emailing fcgc@mercycare.org.  For caregivers: 18+
