DES MOINES, Iowa – A new Test Iowa clinic site is scheduled to open in Pottawattamie County on Mon., July 6, 2020. 

The new clinic site will be located at All Care Health Center, 902 South 6th St., in Council Bluffs. 

Clinic sites are partnerships between the State of Iowa and local health care 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 second Test Iowa location in the area. The first site is a drive-thru test site that opened on May 29 at the Western Historic Trails Center, 3434 Richard Downing Ave., also in Council Bluffs.

Along with the Pottawattamie County location, Test Iowa runs seven additional large-scale, drive-thru test sites located in Black Hawk, Buena Vista, Dallas, Linn, Marshall, Polk, and Scott Counties will remain open. Ten Test Iowa clinic sites are also available in Black Hawk, Carroll, Cass, Crawford, Des Moines, Dickinson, Dubuque, Mitchell, Page, and Union Counties. 

Individuals who wish to get tested at any site must first complete the online assessment at testiowa.com. They will then be directed to schedule an appointment. To date, 824,109 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.
