(From KWQC-TV 6) Wondering if you have been infected with the coronavirus? There is another testing option being offered through Hy-Vee pharmacies. They'll be offering FREE COVID-19 drive-thru testing at 11 locations, including the HyVee on 53rd in Davenport. You don’t need to have symptoms, but do need to register to receive a voucher number and appointment time. To register, visit www.doineedacovid19test.com 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. The COVID-19 tests are being coordinated by eTrueNorth and are offered at the following Hy-Vee pharmacy locations at 4064 E. 53rd Street in Davenport. Other locations in Iowa include:
