Kroger Health to Offer Drive-Thru and Walk-Up Testing Site in Dayton

WHEN:           Wednesday, June 24 – Saturday, June 27

                        8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

                        627 East 1st Street

Dayton, OH 45402

Community members can register at: http://krogerhealth.com/covidtesting.

People needing a test will use a virtual screening tool based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to see if they are eligible. Those who are eligible for the testing are based on CDC, state and local government recommendations.

Those eligible will then select the appropriate testing location and appointment time and receive an email confirmation with pre-appointment paperwork. When the patient arrives for a test, they should have a photo ID ready and leave their windows rolled up for check-in. A health care practitioner will approach the car and alert the patient when to roll down their window.

The drive-thru testing location has a self-administered nasal swab that must be ordered and observed by a provider. Kroger determined their testing methodology because it increases the number of tests that can be provided while conserving the personal protective equipment utilized.

This onsite testing is supported with laboratory services provided by eTrueNorth, a contractor of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

People can expect test results within approximately 48 hours. Kroger Health is expected to administer up to 300 tests per day. Good Neighbor House is a Dayton community nonprofit that empowers healthier communities by fostering the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of its neighbors. The organization provides dental, vision and medical care as well as a food pantry.
