COVID Testing Options
If you are having respiratory symptoms, please make an appointment with your healthcare provider. Based on your symptoms, they will determine what test(s) is (are) appropriate for your situation.
If you are in respiratory distress, please go to the nearest Emergency Room or call 911.
Any citizen may request a home test kit from Floyd Valley Community Health at (712) 546-3335. You will complete this test in your home and send it to the State Hygienic Lab. Based on volume, test results will be available in a few days after the test is received.
Due to volume and limited supply at this time, Floyd Valley Healthcare WILL NOT be testing:
CDC guidance for returning to work/school does not require testing. It states:
Beginning at day 6 after a positive COVID test or symptoms start, if you have been fever-free for 24 hours and you are not experiencing symptoms or your symptoms are greatly improving, you may return to work/school. This would include improvement on any day between day 6 – 10. On day 11, if fever-free for 24 hours, you may return to work/school.
Different destinations and modes of transport may require a specific (PCR or antigen) test. Please ensure the test you are scheduling meets the requirements for your individual trip.
Patient swabs are collected at our facility and then sent to Avera. Results are available in 2 – 4 days. Floyd Valley is currently not offering the rapid PCR test.
Cost is $175 and is due at the time of the test. Call (712) 546-3426 to schedule an appointment.
COVID Antigen tests are performed at Floyd Valley Healthcare, and results are available the same day.

Do I need a vaccine if I have had COVID?
We continue to receive questions about the need for the COVID-19 vaccine if you’ve already had COVID-19. The answer is yes! Even if you’ve already had COVID-19, you still need a vaccine. A 2020 study published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report shows that unvaccinated individuals who were previously infected with COVID-19 are still twice as likely to become infected by the Delta variant. The study concludes that all eligible individuals should be offered the COVID-19 vaccine, even if they’ve had COVID-19 before. Additionally, evidence shows that those who were both naturally infected and received vaccination have “super immunity” and much better protection.
