Rochester HyVee Offering Rapid COVID Testing
The West Circle Dr. HyVee in Rochester is now offering rapid COVID tests. The grocery chain says the drive-thru test is "fast, easy, and convenient" and results are available in as little as 1-2 hours. To find out if you're eligible you need to start with the COVID-19 assessment here. After that, you select the store, date and time, that you want for your appointment.
On the day of your test, you follow the signs in the parking lot to the testing site - once there you'll call the number provided to you and a qualified HyVee employee will come out to administer the test. You'll first be asked to present the test voucher that you received after completing the assessment - you'll also need your ID, phone, a mask, and a credit or debit card to use to pay for the test. Results will be emailed in 1-2 hours.
The grocery chain also offers a traditional lab test. Results from this test are delivered within 3-5 business days. This test is free. You can learn more about HyVee's COVID testing here.
