DES MOINES, Iowa – A new Test Iowa clinic site is scheduled to open in Kossuth County on Wednesday, July 8, 2020. 

The new clinic site will be located at the former Ernie Williams Harley Shop at 2701 US- Hwy 18 in Algona. The hours of operation this week will be Wednesday, July 8, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Thursday, July 9, from 1-4 p.m.; and Friday, July 10, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. 

Clinic sites are partnerships between the State of Iowa and local healthcare providers to increase access to testing in their communities. Clinics operate and staff the test sites. The state provides testing supplies and processes the samples through the State Hygienic Lab.

This site is the first Test Iowa site in Kossuth County.

Test Iowa runs eight additional large-scale, drive-thru test sites in Black Hawk, Buena Vista, Dallas, Linn, Marshall, Polk, Pottawattamie, and Scott Counties. Eleven Test Iowa clinic sites are also available in Black Hawk, Carroll, Cass, Crawford, Des Moines, Dickinson, Dubuque, Mitchell, Page, Pottawattamie, and Union Counties. 

Individuals who wish to get tested for COVID-19 at any site must first complete the online assessment at testiowa.com. They will then be directed to schedule an appointment. To date, 852,475 Test Iowa assessments have been completed.

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.
