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

The Test Iowa site in Scott County, currently located at North Park Mall in Davenport (360 W. Kimberly Road), will move from the mall’s parking lot into the former Sears Auto Center building at the same location when testing concludes on Thursday, Oct. 29 at 6 p.m.   

The enclosed site will protect Test Iowa staff and others from winter weather conditions and allow drive-thru testing to continue. The site will open for testing as normal on Friday, Oct. 30 at 8 a.m.   

Plans are also underway to transition the three remaining sites in Black Hawk, Linn and Pottawattamie counties.  

Additionally, hours of operation will change beginning Monday, Nov. 2 at six state-managed Test Iowa sites in Black Hawk, Linn, Polk, Pottawattamie and Scott counties due to Daylight Savings Time. Sites will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.  

The state continues to work with local and regional health care providers to increase access to testing through Test Iowa clinic sites. The state provides testing supplies and resources, and processes tests through the State Hygienic Lab, while local hospitals or clinics operate and staff the sites.  

Individuals who wish to be tested at any site must first complete an online assessment at testiowa.com, and schedule an appointment.   

Test Iowa is a statewide initiative to expand COVID-19 testing. 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.
