Virus tests for LTC workers offered Friday, Saturday in Adel


COVID-19 tests will be offered Friday and Saturday to all staff members of long-term care facilities in Dallas County at the fairgrounds in Adel by a state-led testing strike team. All nursing home workers are eligible for the tests.

Friday’s tests will be given from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  To make an appointment for testing, contact IDPH COVID-19 Media Relations Coordinator Amy McCoy at

The Dallas County Fairgrounds are located at 28057 Fairground Road in Adel.

The tests will be given through a partnership of the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Iowa National Guard, which have formed testing strike teams. The program is part of the state’s long-term care testing initiative and aims to protect the most vulnerable populations.

The testing strike teams are not related to the Test Iowa testing centers. For more information about Test Iowa, contact McCoy at
