Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) announced on Thursday that the state’s public health emergency proclamation for COVID-19 will end in February.

“We cannot continue to suspend duly enacted laws and treat COVID-19 as a public health emergency indefinitely. After two years, it’s no longer feasible or necessary. The flu and other infectious illnesses are part of our everyday lives, and coronavirus can be managed similarly,” Reynolds said in a statement.

The article goes on to state the following:

“State agencies will now manage COVID-19 as part of normal daily business, and reallocate resources that have been solely dedicated to the response effort to serve other important needs for Iowans,” she added.


“Today I’m announcing the end of the Public Health Disaster Proc, effective 11:59 p.m., Feb. 15. The flu and other infectious illnesses are part of our everyday lives, and coronavirus can be managed similarly,” Gov. Reynolds declared on Twitter, sharing a link to her full press release.

In the press release, Reynolds stated, “States are not required to have a disaster proclamation in place to be eligible for federal coronavirus-related funding or resources. Iowa will continue to receive vaccine and therapeutic allocations as normal after the proclamation expires.”

“Nearly half of U.S. states have already discontinued their public health proclamations, and several more are set to expire in February if they aren’t renewed,” she added.

  3. I’m sure everyone from Iowa is thrilled about this. The whole country should do the same. But my only question is, why wait till the 15th? Do it today!!!
