New Rapid Testing Site Opens in Council Bluffs

A new COVID-19 testing option is coming to Council Bluffs.

88MED said Tuesday it has opened a site at 3100 Nebraska Ave. in the former Rasmussen Mechanical Services building.

The site is open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. seven days a week, with results available in as soon as 20 minutes, according to 88MED, an Omaha-based health care center.

“We are focused on supporting the community’s increased COVID testing needs as individuals seek the peace of mind and some sense of normal as the nation awaits a vaccine,” said Dr. Darin Jackson, medical director at 88MED. “We are excited to expand into Council Bluffs and support the community in this way.”

Based on availability, customers can select from the nasal (antigen) or finger prick (antibody) test. 88MED will bill customers’ insurance or they can select the cash option for $109.*
