Please, Gov. Reynolds, show some pandemic leadership

I am a 74-year-old retired pharmacist and have lived in Iowa all of my life. I owned and operated a pharmacy for 37 years. I know the perils that face small business. I know there is no easy solution to solving the fallout from COVID-19.

However, I cannot believe, Gov. Kim Reynolds, that you would relax current COVID-19 regulations. I guess the alcohol and restaurant lobbies are more important to you than the deaths of more than 5,000 Iowans. Our regulations have been too weak and you have shown yourself to be incompetent in the handling of this crisis.

Please, show us that you do have leadership qualities. Go with the science, go with the people who know, like Dr. Michael Osterholm who says the next 6-14 weeks will be the blackest time during this pandemic.
