Kroger on Monday announced five free COVID-19 testing sites across Greater Houston and Montgomery areas. Kroger will partner with the City of Houston, Harris County and Montgomery county to provide free testing for all priority groups, including healthcare workers, first responders and symptomatic groups. The sites join Kroger’s existing sites across several states, including Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.
“There is a critical need for testing across our city, and it’s important that we step up to meet that need,” said Joe Kelley, President of Kroger Houston. “We have an amazing team of health care professionals who will provide testing at these sites across Houston as we work together to help flatten the curve.”
Americans can access Kroger Health’s free screening tool to determine if testing is appropriate for them and sign up for testing in Montgomery County at krogerhealth.com/covidtesting. This screening tool was adapted from CDC recommendations and is intended to identify patients who need testing the most. Screened individuals can schedule and pre-register for a test at a convenient location. To sign up for testing in Harris county, visit https://covidcheck.hctx.net/.
“This is an excellent example of a public private partnership, and we are thrilled to be joining Kroger in this program,” said Darren Hess, Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. “The residents of Montgomery County are in need of this critical testing, and Kroger has always been a valued partner in Montgomery County. We are excited that their team of healthcare professionals have the ability to provide this program for our citizens.
