Poll: 50% of Iowans oppose state law banning mask mandates
DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) - Half of Iowans now oppose the state law banning local mask mandates, including at schools.
That’s according to a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa poll. And that’s an increase since spring.
Data shows 50 percent of surveyed Iowans oppose the law, compared to 47 percent in favor.
Fifty-five percent of Iowans say they would support mandating COVID-19 vaccines for children in schools once a vaccine gets full federal approval.
Forty-one percent say they are against a vaccine mandate for students.
Iowa currently requires several vaccinations for students including measles, polio, and more unless they’re under religious or medical exemptions.
