IOWA — Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has signed a new proclamation permitting the reopening of outdoor performance venues, casinos, bowling alleys, amusement parks, skating rinks, skate parks and outdoor playgrounds starting June 1. The proclamation enables bars, wineries, breweries, distilleries and social and fraternal clubs to reopen starting May 28 with the same public health measures that restaurants have put in place. Under the order, social or sports gatherings of more than 10 people are permitted if public health measures are implemented, including limiting attendance to 50 percent of capacity and maintaining six feet of distance between participants. The state has also extended the public health disaster emergency until June 25, extending regulatory relief to those affected by the pandemic.
