Hy-Vee Inc. announced that it will offer rapid antigen COVID-19 testing at 47 Hy-Vee pharmacy locations, including three Greater Des Moines stores, via an outdoor drive-thru testing process. The first 18 locations will begin testing today, with the additional locations scheduled to begin testing over the next two weeks. Patients will receive same-day test results in as little as one to two hours after completing the test. The cost for the test varies by location. At this time, Hy-Vee is only accepting testing payment by credit or debit card at the testing site. The rapid antigen testing is in addition to Hy-Vee’s current free COVID-19 lab testing (molecular PCR) that it offers outside more than 180 pharmacy locations in coordination with eTrueNorth. Patients must register ahead of time through www.hy-vee.com/covidtesting to schedule a testing time and location and to receive a test voucher number to bring to their appointment. During registration, patients will be able to view the testing cost for their location. A list of the testing locations and opening dates can be found at the bottom of this press release.
