Dubuque Pharmacy COVID Testing

A local pharmacy hopes to fill in some of the potential gaps in the capacity of testing for the novel coronavirus after state officials lowered the number of tests that a TestIowa site could perform in a given day. There is free testing at Union Family Pharmacy, where people do the testing themselves guided by staff members. Eric Nightingale, co-owner of the pharmacy, said they have not seen the demand they expected. Nightingale tells KCRG-TV they can perform up to 48 tests per day, at least for now. With the local TestIowa clinic now only testing up to 100 people per day per Gov. Kim Reynolds’ order, he wants people to take advantage. An aide to Gov. Kim Reynolds says concerns with the quality and safety of coronavirus testing at the TestIowa clinic in Dubuque prompted the state to sharply reduce its operations this week.
