Social distancing was observed Tuesday afternoon at U.S. Senator Charles Grassley's visit to Decorah City Hall
Each year, U.S. Senator Charles Grassley travels to all of Iowa's 99 counties to hold public forums. In February, Grassley visited 14 counties. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
On Tuesday, Grassley resumed his county visits, making stops in Clayton, Allamakee and Winneshiek counties. In Decorah, Grassley met with six selected people, so the overall meeting would not be larger than the 10 people limit imposed by COVID-19.
After talking with Winneshiek Medical Center Chief Administrative Officer Lisa Radtke, Grassley told decorahnews.com he's a supporter of telehealth and is hoping that some of the regulations being used now during the coronavirus epidemic can be continued after the epidemic ends.
