Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds has tightened the state’s coronavirus containment policies amid a spike in infections, mandating facemasks at all indoor spaces open to the public when social distancing is not an option.
The state’s public health authority announced the order on Monday, outlining a series of ramped up measures to stem the spread of the virus, among them the new mask mandate and curfew, as well as rules limiting the size and scope of public gatherings. The restrictions take effect on Tuesday, just over a week before the Thanksgiving holiday, and will last until December, 10.
