UPDATE ON GOVERNOR REYNOLDS MOST RECENT PROCLAMATION ON 4/27/2020: I do want to stress that things are changing quickly, so if you have any questions or concerns, please dial 2-1-1 for clarifications or questions on the most recent proclamations. Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed a new proclamation yesterday and I wanted to clarify some things. Fayette county, which includes the city of Fayette, is still under the same restrictions that have been in place and the restrictions have been extended until May 15th. That means restaurants, fitness centers, bars, salons, playgrounds, campgrounds, etc. are still closed.  Restaurants are still able to provide carry-out/drive-through/delivery orders, as they have been doing. The proclamation also indicates that a gathering of people inside parked cars, trucks, or other enclosed motor vehicles shall not constitute a gathering of more than 10 people if no more than 10 people are inside each vehicle, all people remain inside the vehicle at all times. It is still strongly encouraged that all vulnerable Iowans, including those with preexisting medical conditions and those older than 65, in all counties of the state to continue to limit their activities outside of their home, including their visits to businesses and other establishments and their participation in gatherings of any size and any purpose. You may still use recreational trails and take walks/bike rides around town, but please use social distancing and other recommended guidelines to help minimize the spread of COVID-19. Again, if you have specific questions or need clarifications, we recommend you call 2-1-1.
