Iowa Update
Yesterday, Governor Reynolds signed a new proclamation continuing the Public Health Disaster Emergency. The proclamation extends the public health mitigation measures that are currently in place, including the requirement to maintain social distancing in bars, restaurants, movie theaters, and similar venues. And it extends many of the regulatory relief measures previously implemented.
The State Public Health Emergency Declaration proclamation is in effect until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, 2020. 
The full proclamation is here.
