The lawyer representing Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds in a federal lawsuit over mandatory mask use in schools has asked the judge to allow a temporary order that has allowed schools to implement mask mandates to expire next week. In its documents made public Monday, the state cited testimonials from mothers of school-age children who make unproven assertions that masks can harm children. The state provided testimonials from three women who said their children have medical issues that makes mask wearing difficult for them.

Iowa state prisons officials say a nurse and a corrections officer have been killed in an attack by an inmate at the Anamosa State Penitentiary. The Iowa Department of Corrections says the attack happened Tuesday morning, when an inmate attacked several staff members and inmates in the prison’s infirmary. The department said that it was still collecting and confirming details of the assault but it can confirm “an inmate attacked multiple staff members and inmates.” As a result of their injuries, a correctional nurse and correctional officer died.

The state of Iowa reports a surge of 740 new COVID-19 cases and 8 deaths for a total of 170 deaths and almost 7,900 positive cases in all.

The governor says the increase correlates with more testing done in high-exposure areas.

The governor admits there is a backlog in getting test results, but the state lab should catch up this weekend so she expects even higher numbers of confirmed cases.

The number of positive cases in Woodbury County topped 1,000 on Friday with 183 new cases.

About 20% are considered recovered and out of isolation.
