DES MOINES — The governor says the number of Iowans hospitalized due to COVID-19 hit an all-time high yesterday with 444 people.

She says they haven't approached peak-hospital capacity and the health care system in Iowa is strong.

Reynolds wished President Trump and the first lady well and said, "The president is also right, we can't let COVID-19 dominate our lives and that's exactly why we've taken the steps we have these last seven months to balance both the lives and livelihoods of Iowans."
