Dec. 30 COVID-19 Update

Winter Storm Delaying Some COVID-19 Testing

Yesterday's winter storm may impact COVID-19 testing, sample transport, and processing.

Sample transport from testing locations to the State Hygienic Lab was cancelled in some areas of the state yesterday where travel was/is not recommended. This may include samples from Test Iowa locations and other testing providers which process tests at the State Hygienic Lab. This will result in a delay in delivery to the lab, processing, and, ultimately, reporting results to patients. However, results should still be delivered within 72 hours if no further delays occur.
