In Monday's press conference, Iowa governor Kim Reynolds said Iowa is "trending in the right direction" as the state is 18 days removed from its highest number of new cases reported and the days to double is now at 21.
Even with new cases being reported, some restrictions on businesses were lifted last week and businesses now have the option to open up if they please.
"We're at a point where we must strike a balance between managing virus activity for the long term and getting our economy up and running again," Reynolds said. "It's not a matter of prioritizing one or the other; it is about prioritizing both."
The COVID-19 TestIowa call center (844-844-1561) is now up and running according to Reynolds, and the data dashboard will be updated with cases in real-time, beginning Monday afternoon.
With Memorial Day weekend coming up, Reynolds said she is continuing to ask Iowans to "exercise personal responsibility" and to "practice social distancing."
