An update from Siouxland Public Media on concerns raised by disability advocates concerning Test Iowa.

The Disabilities Resource Center of Siouxland and Executive Director Don Dew contacted the Governor and Iowa Department of Public Health a week ago to say there was no planning for the Test Iowa program to include people with disabilities.  Testing requires someone to drive through the site.

A week later, Governor Kim Reynolds said Test Iowa isn’t the only option.   

Now that the Governor just opened up Test Iowa for anyone who requests a test, there is concern not everyone can actually receive one.
