Davenport, IA – According to the statement, all people entering court-controlled areas must wear a face covering regardless of the person’s vaccination status.
This order was signed by Chief Justice Susan Christensen.
Chief Justice Susan Christensen said:
“This requirement applies statewide and does not depend on a particular county’s or area’s positivity rate or transmission status.”
This order contradicts Gov. Reynolds’ long-term policy against mask mandates.
In May, she signed a law that bans cities, counties and school districts from requiring masks.
Ladies and gentlemen, Iowa is among nine states that have banned schools from implementing universal mask mandates.
