Wondering if you have been infected with the coronavirus? There is another testing option being offered through Hy-Vee pharmacies.

The grocery store chain just announced it is offering free, COVID-19 drive-thru testing at 11 of its pharmacy locations in its eight-state region. You don’t need to have symptoms, but do need to register to receive a voucher number and appointment time.

To register, visit and answer the questions. You will be directed to a test site pharmacy where you will receive a test kit and information on how to self-administer the test. You can then drop it off in a collection bin at the site. Hy-Vee says the entire process takes about five minutes.

The samples will be sent to a lab with results sent via email in three to five days.
