Iowa Test sites to move Scott County, change hours for winter

Des Moines, IA (STL.News) 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.
