Clay County – Test Iowa

Clay County residents should go to to answer questions about their symptoms, where they work and if they have been around someone who has COVID-19 or traveled to virus “hot spots”. Even if you have no symptoms or have not traveled we encourage you to be assessed via the website.

The Test Iowa is an initiative with the private sector to increase the number of Iowans who are screened for COVID-19. It will assist the State to gather critical information from Iowans that will help our health official’s better target and fight the virus.
The sooner we can identify COVID-19 cases the sooner we can get back to our normal life. Widespread testing is a proven, effective way to control COVID-19.
