The State of Iowa has announced it will close the Test Iowa drive-thru sites in Council Bluffs and Des Moines on Friday, January 15, due to anticipated blizzard conditions across western and central Iowa. Individuals who have appointments scheduled for Friday at these sites will receive an email notification from Test Iowa, and will be able to reschedule their appointment online.
At this time, sites in Cedar Rapids, Davenport and Waterloo plan to open as scheduled on Friday, but that may change depending on local conditions. Any announcements regarding additional closures or changes in hours will be made locally.
The five state-operated Test Iowa drive-thru sites and the State Hygienic Lab will also be closed on Monday, January 18, for the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday. All sites will reopen for testing as usual on Tuesday, January 19, 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.
