Leaders from the company say testing is one of the most important ways to help fight the spread of COVID-19, so they’re happy to help.
People don’t have to have symptoms in order to get tested. Around 260 people will be able to come each day.
"It’s a self-administered test kit. They’ll hand it back to our pharmacist," Roundy’s Supermarkets VP of Communications and Public Affairs Jim Hyland said. "At the end of the day, we’ll FedEx everything to an independent test lab and we expect results within 72 hours or less and a Pick ‘n Save pharmacist will call the tested individuals with their test results.”
The test site will be open May 14-15, 18-21, 26-29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
You can register to get tested on Kroger Health's website.
