Earlier this week, TestIowa was launched in an effort to understand the COVID-19 impact on the state based on participant response. According to their website, TestIowa is a new initiative in partnership with state leaders and private corporations. The goal is to dramatically increase the rate of COVID-19 testing so Iowans can have better access to testing and help stem the spread of COVID-19 to return to normal as quickly as possible.
All Iowans are encouraged to participate in the short survey to determine their current risk. Those with symptoms will be prioritized and given an appointment to a drive-up testing location. Additionally those that have tested positive are asked to answer certain questions to help identify who they may have been in contact with and where they have recently traveled.
Widespread testing is a proven, effective way to combat the spread of COVID-19. Testing provides crucial data that is needed to track the spread of the virus, contain it, and to help find a cure and save lives. The sooner cases can be identified, the sooner society can get back to a normal way of life. Please do your part and complete the survey now using the link provided below.
