An Eastern Iowa Town is Enforcing a Nightly Curfew for Residents
While Iowa is not under any "Shelter in Place" orders during the coronavirus crisis, one Eastern Iowa town has taken their precautions to the next level.
CBS 2 Iowa reports Lisbon, Iowa, near Cedar Rapids, is implementing a nightly curfew for residents. Residents are asked not to leave their homes between 10 pm and 5 am.
"We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause but as a community we will get through this difficult time," O'Connor said, in a statement. "The City of Lisbon will continue to monitor the situation and update residents with any changes to the proclamation."
There are few exceptions to this rule, however. If you have to drive to work, to the gas station or grocery store, or to seek medical treatment, you're excused from the curfew.
Additionally, the mayor told CBS 2 that drivers would not be pulled over if they're using an essential service.
