Hy-Vee to offer rapid antigen testing at 47 locations

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee, Inc. announced today that it will offer rapid antigen COVID19 testing at 47 Hy-Vee pharmacy locations via an outdoor, drive-through testing process. The first 18 locations will begin testing on Thursday, Dec. 10, with the additional 28 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.

Cost for the test varies by location. At this time, Hy-Vee only accepts testing payment by credit or debit card at the testing site. 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 can view the testing cost for their location.

Earlier this month, the CDC issued clarifying guidance for rapid antigen testing. Based on the latest guidance, only the following individuals qualify for rapid antigen testing:

  • Symptomatic individuals.
  • Asymptomatic individuals with a known or reported exposure in the last 14 days.

Any asymptomatic individual without a known exposure in the last 14 days does not qualify for testing through Hy-Vee at this time.

The list of Hy-Vee pharmacy locations offering the rapid antigen test follows below. Each location will offer testing windows between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Children 6 years or older may receive the rapid antigen test when registered and accompanied by a parent or guardian. All patients must wear a mask during the testing process.

To register for an appointment and to receive a test voucher, visit www.hy-vee.com/covidtesting and select the rapid antigen test option. Patients must provide the requested information to receive a test voucher number, testing site, and appointment time. Testing areas, located outside in designated Hy-Vee parking lot locations, allow for patients to drive up without leaving their vehicle. A trained Hy-Vee pharmacy employee will process the testing payment before administering the nasopharyngeal swab test. Testing should take less than 2 minutes. During the testing process, patients must wear a mask and the pharmacist will ask them to lower it beneath their noses during the test. After testing, patients will receive results via email. Patients should receive same day test results in as little as 1-2 hours.

The rapid antigen testing comes as an 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. Results for the lab testing associated with this test usually come in 3-5 business days.
