DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa residents will be allowed to resume dental appointments as Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds made more moves Wednesday to ease restrictions that were imposed to slow the spread of the coronavirus.Besides allowing dental procedures statewide, Reynolds also allowed public and private campgrounds to reopen, ended closure orders for tanning facilities and made clear that drive-in movie theaters were allowed to operate. The changes will be effective Friday morning.Reynolds signed her proclamation on a day when the state reported 12 new coronavirus deaths, bringing the state’s total to 219.The Iowa Department of Public Health also announced another 293 cases of COVID-19, the disease cause by the coronavirus. There have been 10,404 cases confirmed in the state out of more than 63,000 people tested, according to the state’s online coronavirus tracking dashboard.The increases were announced on the same day that Reynolds was in Washington to meet with President Donald Trump to discuss Iowa’s strategy to combat the spread of the virus and to thank the administration for federal help to that end.Reynolds also discussed Iowa’s response to outbreaks at some of the state’s meat processing plants, where employees often work shoulder-to-shoulder.On Tuesday, state officials announced that nearly 1,400 workers at three Tyson Foods pork processing plants in Iowa had tested positive for the virus.In her proclamation, Reynolds also reopened fitness centers, malls and other retail establishments effective Friday in 77 counties while maintaining restrictions in 22 counties, including most of the state’s urban areas. Businesses allowed to open must take measures to ensure social distancing, and retail establishments must ensure the number of customers doesn’t top 50% of the legal occupancy capacity.For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness and death.Click here to read the proclamation
By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsNelson is going to the B.C. Hockey Tier III Bantam Rep Championship tournament next month in Smithers.Which is really no surprise considering how the Leafs owned the Castlegar Rebels during the regular season.However, this playoff series was far from a walk in the park for the Leafs as the Rebels played Nelson tough in all three games losing the first-team-to-four-points series 5-1.“It feels great to be going (to Smithers),” said Nelson defenceman Tyler Podgorenko from outside the winner’s dressing room. “We’ve come a long way since the start of the season and worked through that entire game so this feels really good.”The Leafs clinched the West Kootenay title by rallying from a 3-0 deficit to steal a 5-4 victory Sunday before a boisterous crowd at the NDCC Arena.Sawyer Hunt scored the winning goal at 37 seconds of the third period, and Brayden Pompu made some key saves in the final minutes to power the home side to the series clinching victory.“I let in a few bad goals I shouldn’t have let in but then after that I got some help from our goalie coach (Ian Perreault) . . . he’s an amazing goalie coach who’s helped me all year and he helped me get a lot of confidence at the end,” a beaming Pompu, who had a key kick save in the final minutes of the third period to preserve the win, told The Nelson Daily.Chase Butula got the scoring started for Castlegar before Edward Lindsey and Craig Pilla gave the visitors the three-goal advantage at the first intermission.But Nelson rebounded in the second, scoring two goals in two minutes. Sam Weber got the Leafs going before Brandon Sookro cut the margin to 3-2. Nolan Percival tied the game at the midway point of the period.“I don’t know what happened,” said Nelson captain Colton Dachwitz. “(Castlegar) just came out on fire and we just didn’t come out as hard as they did.”“(But) we never gave up,” Dachwitz, making his fourth trip to a provincial tournament. “We got re-focused in the dressing room and that helped us get back in the game in the second.”Castlegar regained the lead when Nick Evdokimoff beat Pompu but Dachwitz tied the game before the period ended.In the third Hunt pounced on a loose puck to score the game-winning goal.“We just wanted to get it deep and buy time,” Dachwitz said when asked about the strategy in the third period. “We knew their goalie was letting out a lot of rebounds so we just wanted to capitalize on them.”Nelson had a chance to increase the lead but Percival missed a penalty shot and Hunt saw the puck roll of his stick while staring at a wide-open net.Nelson opened the series with a 9-3 victory Friday in game one. Trailing 3-2 after one period, the Leafs out scored the Rebels 7-1.Sam Weber led the Leafs with two goals while Brandon Sookro had a goal and two assists.Saturday, Castlegar forced a third game after rallying from a 6-3 deficit to grab a 7-7 tie.Michael Viala scored three times and Grayson Reitmeyer added a pair to lead the Nelson offence. Dylan Whiffen and Hunt added singles.The comeback point proved to Castlegar coach Grant Pilla the drive his team displayed in the playoffs.“Coming in we were the underdogs as Nelson has a pretty strong team but my guys peaked at the right time,” Pilla explained. “They decided they didn’t want to finish the season without leaving it all on the ice . . .. “And I’m proud of them . . . I’ve very proud of them for the way the played.”ICE CHIPS: Nelson played without key forward Michael Viala, who was suspended for Sunday’s game after receiving a misconduct in the final 10 minutes of the third period of Saturday’s 7-7 tie. . . . Nelson defenceman Carson Arcuri injured his leg in the series. . . .During Friday’s game there was more action off the ice than on the ice as parents from both teams exchanged words.
