Visit our Urgent Care for your COVID-19 symptoms or possible exposure to COVID-19. We offer PCR and rapid testing with an average 24-48 hour result turnaround time at our Urgent Care and other primary care clinic locations as well. Testing options can vary based on exposure status and symptoms. Please note that supply chain issues have started to impact our testing availabilities and result timelines may vary.
If you are concerned about possible exposure to COVID-19, please self-isolate and contact your primary care provider to determine your best next steps. Not everyone needs to be tested immediately, the time frame of when you should be tested is dependent upon your type of exposure. Typically, it is best to complete the test 4-6 days after exposure, unless symptoms present sooner.
Test Iowa is now supplying at-home testing kits. You can pick up one of these kits from our Lab located inside our Multi-Specialty Clinic location.
Visit the Centers for Disease Control website to learn about the testing requirements. Testing requirements can vary based on vaccination status, symptoms, and exposure.
