Thursday Afternoon the IDPH reported an 11% increase in Covid-19 cases in Iowa. Governor Reynolds addressed the media and announced an extension on the order of business closures.
The Governor also extended school closures until the end of the month.
Dr. Padati from the IDPH spoke at the press conference and she says that with the number of cases expected to peak, she is looking at ways to lessen that impact.
Governor Reynolds then responded to criticism of her not putting a shelter in place order in motion.
