Governor Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation on Wednesday, paving the way for more businesses to reopen later this week.
Starting Friday, if dental offices have the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), they will be permitted to perform routine procedures in 77 of the Iowa counties that had restrictions loosened last week.
Additionally, campgrounds, drive-in movie theaters, tanning facilities, and medical spas can reopen on Friday. The opening of these facilities are contingent on adhering to social distancing guidelines and sanitation standards.
Social and fraternal clubs will be permitted to open and serve food and beverages on Friday. They must operate at 50 percent capacity.
In the 22 counties that still had restrictions in place (such as Henry County), fitness centers can start taking appointments but just a single patron will be allowed in the facility at one time. Malls can open as well but must operate at 50 percent capacity and must close common seating and play areas.
The restaurants in the 22 counties must remain closed.
