SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Hy-Vee announced Wednesday it is expanding its COVID-19 testing options by offering rapid antigent testing at dozens of its stores, including two in Sioux Falls.

The Hy-Vee locations at 49th and Louise and on Minnesota and 41st will begin offering the tests on Thursday, according to the company.

People who take the test can receive results in as little as one to two hours. However, unlike Hy-Vee’s standard COVID-19 testing, the antigen test will not be free. The cost varies by location, company officials say.

In addition, patients must either have COVID-19 symptoms or must have recently been exposed to someone infected with the disease in the past 14 days.

A total of 47 Hy-Vees will soon offer rapid antigen testing, though the two Sioux Falls locations are the only stores in South Dakota offering.

You can find more information about the testing at Hy-Vee’s website.
