Reynolds Issues Mask Mandate for Some Social Gatherings

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds issued new health requirements this week requiring children and adults to wear masks at social or recreational gatherings with 25 people inside or 100 people outside. The new measures, which went into effect at midnight Tuesday, require masks at any “social, community, recreation, leisure or sporting event.” The order expires Nov. 30, according to the proclamation. Reynolds also limited the size of parties that can be together in public places such as bars, restaurants, bowling alleys, arcades, indoor playgrounds, children’s play centers and pool and bingo halls. Reynolds said groups in such places must be limited to eight people, unless everyone is from the same household.

The Department of Public Health reported that 196 patients with the virus were in intensive care. The department reported that about 33% of the state’s hospital beds were still available. Polk County public health officials warned Nov. 6 that the local COVID-19 case count will triple the spring peak in the next two weeks if infections grow at the current rate. The state has averaged 3,888 new cases per day over the past week, an increase of 200% from the average two weeks ago. Iowa is approaching 160,000 cases and has recorded 1,872 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic. Learn more.
