Where to Go for Care During COVID-19

You might have questions about how to get the care you need during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to protect yourself and others, it's important to make informed choices.

Please Call Ahead Before Any Visit

To reduce community spread of COVID-19, we're asking all patients to please call ahead before visiting a clinic. If you have a medical emergency, please call 911.

We've made a few changes, so be sure to check clinic closings and restrictions before calling.


Care for COVID-19 Exposure or Symptoms

If you believe you have developed symptoms including fever, cough and/or difficulty breathing, and you have had contact with a person with COVID-19, we encourage you to call your primary care provider. Proper screening will be done over the phone. Please call your provider as a first step.

If you do not have a primary care provider, please call 2-1-1 or (515) 323-5680 to be properly assessed for potential COVID-19 symptoms that include fever, cough and/or difficulty breathing and you will be advised on next steps. An appointment is required to visit the Adult & Pediatric Respiratory Illness Clinic. These precautions are important for your safety.

Care and Treatment Options for Everything Else

If you need treatment for something other than COVID-19, we've got your back. Take advantage of Virtual Urgent Care, or find a walk-in clinic near you.

Walk-In Clinics

You can get the care you need at one of our walk-in care locations. Simply call ahead to one of the urgent care or UnityPoint Clinic - Express locations listed below. We've made some changes, so check our clinic closings and restrictions before you go.
