Governor Reynolds announces TestIowa

4/21/2020

In Iowa, we take care of each other, and COVID-19 can show us the power we have when we work together. The best thing you can do right now to stop the spread and save lives is take a health assessment so we can better understand what is currently going on in Iowa.

What is TestIowa?

TestIowa is a new initiative in partnership with our state leaders and private corporations. Our goal is to dramatically increase the rate of COVID-19 testing so Iowans can have better access to testing and help stem the spread of COVID-19 to get us back to normal as quickly as possible.

Why is it important to consider testing?

  •  The sooner we can identify COVID-19 cases, the sooner we can get back to our normal way of life.
  •  In addition to social distancing, widespread testing is a proven, effective way to combat the spread of COVID-19.
  •  Testing gives us crucial data that we need to track the spread of the virus, contain it, and to help find a cure and save lives.
