Test results are expected within approximately 48 hours. Kroger Health is expected to administer 250 tests per day.
Those eligible will then select the appropriate testing location and appointment time and receive an email confirmation with pre-appointment paperwork. When the patient arrives for a test, they should have a photo identification ready and leave their windows rolled up for check-in. A health care practitioner will approach the car and alert the patient when to roll down their window.
The drive-through testing location has a self-administered nasal swab that must be ordered and observed by a provider. Kroger determined its testing methodology because it increases the number of tests that can be provided while conserving the personal protective equipment utilized, official said.
This onsite testing is supported with laboratory services provided by eTrueNorth, a contractor of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
