Channel Cat Water Taxi in the Quad Cities is ready to resume service and head back out onto the Mississippi River just in time for the summer.

On Wednesday, Channel Cat Water Taxi announced on social media that they will be resuming service on May 29th. Resuming service in the time of coronavirus pandemic does mean that they will have new safety measures put into place.

According to their social media post, the Channel Cat Water Taxi boats will only run at approximately half capacity. This is intended to make sure that families can ride together safely on the boats. The captain and crew of the boats will also be wearing face masks, and the staff and crew encourage all riders to do the same. Channel Cat Water Taxi is also not issuing hand stamps this year for reentry. Instead, riders will need to show their paper or mobile ticket to re-board the boat.

The same day as Channel Cat Water Taxi's announcement on social media, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds announced more eased restrictions in the state of Iowa. Also that same day, Governor J.B. Pritzker announced plans to move into Phase 3 of the "Restore Illinois" plan which also eases restrictions.
