Iowa Governor In ‘Modified Quarantine’ After Pence Meetings

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa’s governor and its medical director are in partial quarantine after potential exposure to the coronavirus, even as the state made plans to lift more restrictions that were intended to fight the disease.  Gov. Kim Reynolds says she will follow a modified quarantine plan because she may have been exposed last week while visiting the White House or meeting with Vice President Mike Pence two days later in Iowa.  The governor says she’ll have minimal interactions with others, wear a mask at times and practice social distancing.  Dr. Caitlin Pedati, the state epidemiologist, says she’s in quarantine and working from home after joining Reynolds at the White House last week.
