Dallas County drive-thru Test Iowa site to open June 8 in Waukee
DES MOINES - Test Iowa will further expand access to COVID-19 testing with new sites opening this week, including one in Dallas County to better serve the Des Moines metro area, and four clinic sites in rural communities.
The Dallas County drive-thru site opens on Monday, June 8 from 12 to 6 p.m., and is located in Waukee at South Middle School, 2350 SE LA Grant Parkway. Individuals must complete the assessment at testiowa.com and schedule an appointment online to be tested.
Additionally, four clinic sites will serve Page, Union, Carroll and Crawford counties. 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.
