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.

DES MOINES  The state of Iowa continues its plans to relocate or transition Test Iowa sites in preparation for the winter months.   

The Test Iowa site in Linn County, currently located at the DOT District 6 office in Cedar Rapids, will be relocated after testing concludes at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 6. It will reopen Monday, Nov. 9 at 8 a.m., at Windstar Lines, 5755 Willow Creek Drive SW in Cedar Rapids.   

In Black Hawk County, the Test Iowa site at Crossroads Mall in Waterloo will also close when testing concludes Friday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. It will be relocated to 4121 Alexandra Drive in Waterloo, and reopen for testing at 8 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 9.  

Both of the new sites are enclosed, allowing drive-thru testing to continue throughout the winter months.  

Also on Friday, Nov. 6, the Test Iowa site at Polk County River Place in Des Moines will close for the season when testing concludes at 6 p.m. The site is the second to serve Polk County, and will be consolidated into a larger, enclosed site which recently opened at 4475 NE 3rd Street in Des Moines. The single site is capable of managing the testing volume generated by the Des Moines metro area and surrounding communities.   

Plans remain underway to transition the remaining drive-thru site in Pottawattamie County.  

Additionally, hours of operation will change next week in observance of Veterans Day. State operated drive-thru sites will close early at 12 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 10, to allow samples to be collected, transported and processed at the State Hygienic Lab through Tuesday evening. Sites will be closed on Wednesday, Nov. 11 for the holiday, and will reopen the following day at 8 a.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.
