Reynolds: Bars To Close In 6 Counties

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has ordered that all bars, taverns, breweries and nightclubs be closed in six of the state’s largest counties in response to surging numbers of confirmed coronavirus cases blamed in part on young people ignoring mask and social distancing recommendations in such establishments. Reynolds ordered the action in Black Hawk, Dallas, Linn, Johnson, Polk and Story counties effective at 5 pm Thursday on a day when the state saw nearly 1,500 confirmed cases, a new high that topped levels recorded in the spring. As she has been saying for months, the Governor is strongly encouraging all Iowans, age 2 and older to wear a mask or other face covering when in public settings. The Governor’s latest declaration for the six affected counties remains in effect until September 20th.
