DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds said the state “sees signs of continued improvement” in its fight against COVID-19.
Reynolds said Tuesday that the state reported just over 14,200 new cases last week, up from around 30,000 per week in early November.
The statewide positivity rate has also fallen since new mitigation strategies were put in place. The rate was around 30 percent in early November and around 15 percent last week. Check out adult web cams"}”>adult web cams here
Reynolds said that despite being a holiday week, Iowa tested more people last week than in early November.
“We are cautiously optimistic that the mitigation is doing what it is supposed to do,” she said.
Reynolds also called on Congress to come together and pass a relief program to help small businesses.
“While the progress is reassuring, we are not out of the woods,” she said.
