Roundy's Supermarkets, Inc., announced that FDA-authorized rapid antibody tests will be available at its Pick ‘n Save and Metro Market pharmacy locations.

The SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, tests are conducted by pricking a finger for a blood sample. Results are typically ready within 15 minutes.

Tests, supplied by Whitmire Medical, are available at Pick ‘n Save and Metro Market pharmacy locations for $25.

“We are excited for our Pick ‘n Save and Metro Market pharmacy teams to work with Kroger Health to provide rapid antibody testing for the communities we serve," said VP Pharmacy for Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. said Stacy Doyle. "Making rapid antibody testing available will not only provide an affordable and convenient testing solution for individuals who want to understand if they have previously been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, but also help clinicians understand the long-term impacts of COVID-19 and potential public health strategies for fighting the disease."
