Earlier today, Governor Kim Reynolds announced that 77 counties will have some of the restrictions enacted in her public health emergency proclamations lifted on May 1. That includes opening retail stores to operate at 50% capacity. Current restrictions were extended for the remaining 22 counties through at least May 15.
Counties maintaining the current level of restrictions are:
- Black Hawk
- Des Moines
The governor emphasized during her press conference today that she continues to ask Iowans to socially distance and maintain all restrictions not specifically addressed in today's proclamation.
