Iowa Will Ban Vaccine Passports
Summer is coming and that means a lot more people will be traveling. Take the fact that we're (hopefully) exiting this pandemic, and some people haven't traveled in a year...a whole lot of us are itching to go on vacation.
The question many people are asking across the United States is how we'll know it's safe to travel. Some officials are offering up the solution of a COVID vaccine passport. This was put up for debate in the Iowa legislature in early May.
As reported in Radio Iowa, this topic has been put to rest amongst Iowa lawmakers. Currently, the bill to ban vaccine passports in the state of Iowa has passed through the state legislature and is being sent to Governor Kim Reynolds for approval.
This bill will forbid businesses and other specific private institutions from requiring individuals to provide proof of vaccination. Also in this bill, there will be an exception to this rule in certain circumstances including; nursing homes and health care facilities. People in those circumstances can be asked about their COVID vaccination.
