Cedar Rapids Gazette: The director of the Iowa Department of Public Health said Tuesday he is retiring as the agency continues to head the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Gerd Clabaugh, 58, said he will leave July 31 “to spend more time with family and seek new opportunities.” In response to questions, Gov. Kim Reynolds’ spokesman said Clabaugh was not asked to retire, and a state public health department spokeswoman said Clabaugh was not available for interviews.
