Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds says she will begin a "modified quarantine plan" as a result of her trip to Washington, D.C. last Wednesday.

At her daily news conference Monday, Reynolds mentioned the positive test result for a member of Vice President Mike Pence's staff last week.  She says she will now practice social distancing, will wear a mask when out in public and will allow members of her staff to work from home.

Reynolds said she had "no direct contact" with the member of Pence's staff who had a positive COVID-19 result, but she is following the advice of the Iowa Department of Public Health.
