Governor Kim Reynolds held a press conference Thursday. She announced that she is launching a second public relations campaign to encourage Iowans to double-down on pandemic precautions, so Main Street businesses can stay open, hospitals don’t get overrun with Covid patients and kids can stay in school.
This new effort will include messages on Iowa radio and T-V stations and in local newspapers. The number of Covid patients in Iowa hospitals has doubled in the past month.
Reynolds told reporters government solutions alone can’t stop the virus, so it’s up to every Iowan to take additional precautions. She’s asking Iowans to consider whether indoor gatherings are worth the risk and how they can safely celebrate the upcoming holidays.
