In a continued effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Iowa, Governor Kim Reynolds is asking all Iowans to step up and mask up. Masks are not mandated, but Reynolds says that wearing a mask is simply the right thing to do. Protecting yourself means you are also protecting your friends, family, coworkers, and fellow Iowans.

Wearing a mask in addition to practicing social distancing, implementing excellent hygiene, and staying home when ill are the simple steps we can take to help slow the transmission of the virus.

For more information about cloth face coverings, visit the Iowa Department of Public Health’s website.
