Iowa Health Emergency Declaration Extended to July 25


Governor Reynolds has signed an extension to the Emergency Declaration that will now expire on July 25, 2021.

The proclamation addresses many of the things that were addressed in the previous proclamation, including masks, meetings, etc. The proclamation also extends the 90,000-pound weight exception. Commodities included in this exception include vaccines, antivirals, prescription drugs, protective equipment, other necessary medical assets, food, medical supplies, cleaning products, other household goods, agricultural supplies and commodities (including, but not limited to livestock, raw milk, and crop supplies), agricultural waste (including, but not limited to animal carcasses), or any other goods and supplies necessary to respond to this public health disaster and its economic effects and would normally require a permit to transport such loads.

The proclamation also extends the hours of service waiver when transporting the same products when responding to the current health emergency.

If you have any questions concerning this declaration, please call the IMTA office at (515) 244-5193.
