Gov. Kim Reynolds expanded the state's disaster health proclamation during her Thursday's live news conference on Iowa's coronavirus response.

Reynolds said she was extending the state's existing closures an additional week — to April 7 — and ordering additional types of stores to close.

Included in the original order were restaurants and bars, fitness centers, swimming pools, salons, medical spas, barbershops, tattoo establishments, tanning facilities, massage therapy establishments, theaters, casinos and gaming facilities, senior citizen centers and other adult daycare facilities, and general mass gatherings.

The expanded DHM now also includes bookstores, clothing stores, shoe stores, jewelry stores, luggage stores, florists, furniture and home furnishing stores, as well as cosmetic, beauty, and perfume stores.

Discount stores, grocers, and pharmacies are not affected, according to Section 5 of the measure.
