Yes, Since 4 November 2018, all US sanctions against Iran have been reinstated.
8 May 2019, "Imposing Sanctions with Respect to the Iron, Steel, Aluminum, and Copper Sectors of Iran"

The JCPOA was implemented on 16 January 2016, nevertheless, on May 8, 2018, the President announced his decision to cease the United States’ participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and to begin re-imposing, following a wind-down period, the U.S. nuclear-related sanctions that were lifted to effectuate the JCPOA sanctions relief. In conjunction with this announcement, the President issued a National Security Presidential Memorandum (NSPM) directing the Secretary of State and the Secretary of the Treasury to prepare immediately for the re-imposition of all of the U.S. sanctions lifted or waived in connection with the JCPOA, to be accomplished as expeditiously as possible and in no case later than 180 days from the date of the NSPM.
To implement the President’s direction, the Departments of State and of the Treasury will take steps necessary to establish a 90-day and a 180-day wind-down period for activities involving Iran that were consistent with the U.S. sanctions relief provided for under the JCPOA. OFAC expects that all the U.S. nuclear-related sanctions that had been lifted under the JCPOA will be re-imposed and in full effect.

After the 90-day wind down period ends on August 6, 2018, the U.S. government will re-impose certain sanctions that were lifted pursuant to the JCPOA, including sanctions on associated services related to the activities.

Following the 180-day wind-down period ending on November 4, 2018, the U.S. government will re-impose the remaining sanctions that were lifted pursuant to the JCPOA, including sanctions on associated services related to the activities.

Persons engaging in the activity listed above undertaken pursuant to the U.S. sanctions relief provided for in the JCPOA should take the steps necessary to wind down those activities by August 6, 2018 resp. November 4, 2018, to avoid exposure to sanctions or an enforcement action under U.S. law.
