Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds

Gov. Kim Reynolds told reporters on Thursday that soon any Iowan who wants a test for COVID-19 will be able to get one. This comes as even more Iowa businesses are reopening on Friday and as hundreds of new confirmed coronavirus cases are reported daily. 

The state hit 400 known deaths from COVID-19 on Thursday.

"There is a societal cost to just shutting down and not realistically moving forward through this pandemic," Gov. Reynolds said during her Thursday press conference.
