Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a new Public Health Disaster proclamation that imposes a number of additional public health measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. These new measures are now in effect statewide and will continue until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 10, 2020. Read the proclamation.
Mask Use: Indoor spaces open to the public and State executive branch buildings
Gathering Restrictions: Social, community, business or leisure gatherings
Sporting and Recreational Events: Youth and adult group sporting and recreational gatherings are prohibited except for high school, college and professional sports
High School Sports & Extracurriculars: Sporting, recreational and extracurricular events
Restaurants and Bars: Restaurant or bar, including a wedding reception venue, winery, brewery, distillery, country club or other social or fraternal club
Fitness Centers: Fitness centers, health clubs, health spas, gyms
Casinos & Gaming Facilities: Masks required except when seated to eat or drink
Closer/Prolonged Contact Establishments: Bowling alleys, pool halls, bingo halls, arcades, indoor playgrounds, children’s play centers
Nonessential/elective surgeries: A hospital must reduce its in-patient, nonessential surgeries to a level that uses at least 50% fewer beds than it did on average during September 2020
To avoid confusion and any conflicting requirements, the face covering proclamation previously issued by Waukee Mayor Courtney Clarke on Nov. 5, 2020 will change from a requirement to a strong recommendation while Gov. Reynolds’ proclamation is in effect. If the Governor’s proclamation does expire on Dec. 10 without any extension, it is Mayor Clarke’s intent to reinstitute the face covering requirement proclamation in Waukee on Dec. 11 through Dec. 31, 2020, unless modified or amended. Read the current proclamation which encourages the wearing of face coverings in public places in Waukee and compliance with Gov. Reynolds’ Nov. 16, 2020 Public Health Disaster proclamation.
Businesses and residents should refer to the Office of the Governor at (515) 281-5211 for any questions related to COVID-19 mitigation efforts such as mask requirements, closures and more. Businesses may remove City signs related to the previous face covering requirement proclamation issued by Mayor Clarke, but are encouraged to keep them for possible later use.
Thank you to everyone in the Waukee community for helping to keep each other safe and healthy.
