Most Iowa businesses that were closed or severely restricted because of the new coronavirus pandemic will be allowed to reopen Friday, Gov. Kim Reynolds announced in her daily press conference this morning.
The relaxing of restrictions will apply to all counties, including the 22 that have been under heavier restrictions. There will be limitations on occupancy, similar to what western Iowa restaurants have had for the past two weeks for customers who dine-in.
Notable for Carroll County: Salons, barber shops and massage parlors can reopen. Bars and theaters are set to remain closed until at least May 27.
Playgrounds, skate parks and swimming pools are also closed until May 27, along with senior centers, adult daycare facilities and bingo halls.
