Pick 'n Save and Kroger Health plan to offer drive-through coronavirus testing at the former BMO Harris Bradley Center site beginning on Thursday.

Organizers plan to offer the testing on May 14-15, May 18-21, and on May 26-29 from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m.

Members of the community can register to be tested by clicking here. Testing eligibility is determined through a virtual screening tool based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the company said.

Those eligible will be given an appointment time to select in their area. After, an email confirmation will be sent with pre-appointment paperwork, according to Kroeger. Organizers recommend having a photo ID at the testing site and should leave car windows rolled up until a Pick ‘n Save pharmacy associate approaches the car and advises the patient when to roll down the window.

The drive-through testing location has a self-administered nasal swab that must be ordered and observed by a provider, the company said. Pick ‘n Save pharmacists expect to test as many as 260 people per day. Results are expected to be returned within 72 hours.

“This work, like all the work we do, is guided by our values and Our Promise to Feed the Human Spirit,” said Colleen Lindholz, President of Kroger Health. “As we continue to create partnerships that offer easy-to-access testing, we are proud of our commitment to serving our customers and our communities.
