On Friday, October 9th, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced a partnership with Fruth Pharmacy for COVID-19 testing.
For those interested in a free COVID-19 test, please register for your test ahead of time on www.doineedacovid19test.com. The patient wanting a test will need to complete information on this website and it will create a voucher. The patient will need to bring the voucher either printed on paper or be able to show the voucher on a cell phone during appointment.
If the Fruth Pharmacy location has a drive-thru, the patient will take the COVID-19 test in the drive-thru area. If the Fruth Pharmacy location does not have a drive-thru, the patient will use the Curbside Pick-Up Area. The patient will call the number on the Curbside sign and a Fruth Pharmacy staff member will bring the test out to the patient’s car. A Fruth Pharmacy staff member will walk patients through the self-administered test.
There is no charge to the patient for this test.
Tests are also available at Fruth Pharmacy locations in Ohio, including Gallipolis and Pomeroy locations. You do not have to take the test in the state you live. For example: If you live in Gallipolis you can take the test in the drive-thru at the Point Pleasant location.
