Gov. Kim Reynolds has extended the waiver of some state rules for another month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The state has suspended a variety of rules, including some professional requirements at schools and medical facilities, to help with staffing during the pandemic. Reynolds also extended a waiver of weight restrictions on trucks.
Even as Iowa’s COVID-19 cases have risen in recent days following the suspension last month of the state’s restrictions on bars, restaurants and other business, the latest proclamation contains no new limits on activities. The proclamation strongly encourages citizens, businesses and organizations to take “reasonable public health measures.”
The full proclamation is here.
