Gov. Reynolds expands TestIowa, says anyone who 'thinks that they should be tested' can be

Nearly 478,000 TestIowa assessments have been completed as of 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

JOHNSTON, Iowa — Iowans hoping to be tested at TestIowa sites across the state will be able to do so, according to Gov. Kim Reynolds.

Her announcement Thursday means that more than just high-risk individuals and essential workers will be able to be tested.

"Previously, we expanded to allow testing for essential workforce," Reynolds announced during her Thursday press conference. "Later today, we'll be opening the criteria so that anyone who thinks that they should be tested can be."

Iowans are asked to fill out an assessment on the updated website, or if you've already filled it out, update your information and symptoms accordingly.

Once the assessment is taken, users can look at available appointments and select a testing time.

"Right now, we're able to significantly increase our testing capacity," Reynolds added. "As I said, we're opening up to anyone who wants to be tested."

Nearly 478,000 TestIowa assessments have been completed as of 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
