“Test Iowa” site opens at Crossroads Mall in Waterloo
WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) — The second of its kind, a drive-thru testing site for “Test Iowa” opened Wednesday at Crossroads Mall in Waterloo.
For the first two days, the tent will operate from noon to 6 p.m. before becoming fully operational on Friday, when it will operate instead from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. moving forward.
Iowans who simply drive up without an appointment from TestIowa.com will be turned away.
“Once they reach the area, we ask that people keep their windows up and have their IDs and QR code, that they’ll receive from TestIowa.com, ready. Once they reach the site, they’ll be directed by National Guard soldiers where to go to next,” said Major Bryan Davis with the Iowa National Guard who are facilitating the site’s opening.
Wednesday morning, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds wished the site luck and said they were prioritizing essential workers for the first tests.
