WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said the increase in cases recently has been with younger adults.
She said while health officials have seen a significant decline in cases with the elderly, the increase in cases recently has been with people ages 21 and 22.
Reynolds said people not wearing masks has also been a factor in increased cases.
"They're out, they have been pent up for several months and as we start to open up the economy I don't think it is unreasonable to think we would see a little bit of an uptick in positive cases. They were also able to drill down with some of the data, and it does correlate with somewhat with the opening of bars. So we know that is part of the scenario, protests, and people just being out and being in close proximity," said Gov. Reynolds.
