TROY, Ohio (WDTN) – Kroger Health will offer drive-thru COVID-19 testing at Troy Hospital next week.

The site will be open from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. from May 26 through May 28 on the Troy Hospital campus, located at 600 W. Main Street.

Those who request a test will use a virtual screening tool based on CDC guidelines to determine their eligibility. If you are eligible, you will then select a testing location and appointment time. Participants will then receive an email confirmation with pre-appointment paperwork.

Patients should have a photo ID ready and leave their windows rolled up for check-in. A health care practitioner will approach the vehicle and alert the patient when it’s time to roll their window down.

The drive-thru location, made possible by Kettering Health Network, utilizes a self-administered nasal swab that must be ordered and observed by a provider. Test results are expected within roughly 48 hours.

Kroger Health expects to administer 250 tests per day.
