IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - Nomi Health has announced that they have partnered with the Iowa City Community School District to give the public access to COVID-19 testing.

“The sites are for everyone,” said Deputy Superintendent Chace Ramey. “We’re not really going to judge or dictate when a person might come to use the site.”

The first testing location is at Liberty High School. The drive-thru site is open and available, offering both rapid antigen testing (with a 30-minute turnaround time) and PCR testing (with a 24-48 hour turnaround time).

While the partnership was designed to allow access for students, staff, and families, the district said it was important to open for everyone.

“NOMI has assured us that they do have the capacity and capability to make testing available to everyone, and while we are concerned about our students and our staff, we’re also concerned about our entire community,” he said.

“We reach out and then the cities, counties, different health departments, and the state reaches out to us,” said Carolina Herrin, Operations Director for NOMI Health.

Hours: Monday-Friday 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Saturday 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Location: Liberty High School, 1400 South Dubuque Street, North Liberty IA.

Those interested in a test are asked to register first in advance by visiting nomihealth.com/iowa/. If you are unable to make an appointment online, you may register at the site.
