COVID-19 Test Kits

Individuals can come to the Health Department Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM and ask the front desk for a COVID-19 test kit.

After individuals have completed the self-collect saliva test, they can drop it off at the State Hygienic Lab in Ankeny (2220 S Ankeny Blvd, Ankeny, IA 50023) OR send the test kit back with the UPS label provided with the kit.

Once the saliva test gets to the lab, the processing time for results may vary. Individuals usually receive results within a few days.
