The 7/24 proclamation extends public health mitigation measures currently in place for businesses and other establishments. This includes the requirements for bars and restaurants to ensure six feet of physical distance between each group or individual dining or drinking; to ensure all patrons have a seat at a table or bar; and to limit congregating together closer than six feet. Requirements for social distancing, hygiene, and other public health measures to reduce the risk of transmission also remain in place for gyms, casinos, salons, theaters, and other establishments without change.
Currently, Iowa is not under a stateside mask mandate. Additionally, on May 20, 2021, Iowa enacted a law prohibiting public schools, cities, and counties from issuing mask mandates.
On Feb. 7, 2021, a Proclamation of Disaster Emergency lifted the statewide mask mandate, which had been in place since Nov. 2020. The now lifted mandate had required Iowans to to wear masks when people are in an indoor public space and unable to social distance for 15 minutes or longer. Businesses are still encouraged to follow CDC guidelines for distancing and sanitation.
