Gov. Kim Reynolds is holding a news conference at 11 a.m. Wednesday to provide an update on COVID-19 in Iowa. Watch it live in the video player above.

Reynolds last week extended through Wednesday a COVID-19 emergency proclamation that imposed some mask requirements and put limitations on the size of gatherings. She should announce in the news conference or sometime Wednesday if the proclamation will be extended again. 

Under the order, all Iowans must wear a face mask or other face covering while indoors in public and within 6 feet to others for 15 minutes. The order also requires bars, restaurants and other venues serving alcohol to close at 10 p.m.
