To ensure Iowans have access to testing during the holidays, Test Iowa’s five state-operated drive-thru sites and the State Hygienic Lab will be closed only on Friday, Dec. 25, for Christmas Day and Friday, Jan. 1, for New Year’s Day. The sites include:  

  • Black Hawk County — 4121 Alexandra Drive, Waterloo  
  • Linn County — Windstar Lines, 5755 Willow Creek Drive SW, Cedar Rapids  
  • Polk County — 4475 NE 3rd Street, Des Moines  
  • Pottawattamie County — 3236 Nebraska Ave., Council Bluffs  
  • Scott County — North Park Mall, 320 W. Kimberly Road, Davenport  

Sites will be open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, except for the Council Bluffs site, which will close at 2 p.m. The early closure allows time for test samples to be transported to the lab for processing overnight, so that results can be reported in a timely manner.  

The State Hygienic Lab will reopen on the Saturday, Dec. 26 and Jan. 2, and resume test processing. The five drive-thru sites will reopen for testing as usual on Monday, Dec. 28 and Jan. 4, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

Individuals who wish to be tested at any site must first complete an online assessment at testiowa.com and schedule an appointment. Locations and hours of operation for all test sites can be found at testiowa.com or coronavirus.iowa.gov.

As Iowa’s 43rd Governor, Kim Reynolds is determined to make sure that Iowa’s success is every Iowan’s success. Whether it’s preparing Iowans for cutting-edge careers, fighting for education, improving healthcare and mental health access, or empowering our rural communities, Kim’s priorities are making a difference in all four corners of the state. Her vision keeps Iowans at the center of all decisions, especially in the area of fiscal responsibility. Kim knows that when Iowa taxpayers are able to keep more of their money, great things happen. She also believes in redemption. Kim’s justice reform initiatives carefully balance second chances with victim rights. As Governor, Kim’s strong voice for international trade, agriculture, and advanced manufacturing is opening new markets and maintaining relationships with leaders in China, Mexico, Canada, Israel, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Germany, Brazil and Argentina, to name just a few. Although she’s traveled the world telling Iowa’s story, Kim is still a small-town girl at heart with common-sense values. These principles are reflected in the Governor’s Empower Rural Iowa initiative and Future Ready Iowa. At age 57, Kim earned a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University. Then, nearly two years later, on Nov. 4, 2018, she was elected by Iowans to become their first woman Governor. Family means everything to Kim and her husband, Kevin. They have three daughters (Jennifer, Nicole and Jessica) who are happily married, and Kim and Kevin love spending time with their 10 very active grandchildren.
