Bars, taverns, breweries and night clubs in certain Iowa counties must close by 5 p.m. Thursday because of the spread of COVID-19, Gov. Kim Reynolds announced at a press conference.

Restaurants in those counties can stay open, but must stop alcohol sales at 10 p.m.

"We made the decision to move forward with this because we wanted to get in front of a bad flu season and we want to flatten that curve and reduce the virus activity," Reynolds said

The governor said closures will remain in effect until Sept. 20.
