DUBUQUE, Iowa – Hartig Drug Company now offers free self-collection Covid-19 PCR test kits at all of its 23 locations in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

Through a partnership with testing company eTrueNorth, these lab-based PCR test kits increase the availability of testing throughout the communities Hartig Drug serves and provide a more accurate Covid-19 test result.

“We are excited to expand our Covid-19 testing partnership with eTrueNorth. Hartig Drug has already facilitated thousands of Covid-19 tests in the tri-states. This new program will expand our reach and allow all of our locations to conveniently offer free, no-questions-asked testing options for many rural tristate communities,” said Charlie Hartig, CEO, Hartig Drug Company.

Customers are required to complete an online assessment at www.iNeedaCovid19test.com and select a Hartig Drug location. Once completed, individuals will receive a voucher to pick up the free test. Vouchers may be printed or shown on a smartphone.

Specimen collection must be done at home. Individuals should follow the instructions provided in the test kit for nasal swab self-collection and return the specimen bag to the designated dropbox at Hartig Drug on the same day it was collected. Test results will be emailed and may take 3 to 5 business days.

Customers are strongly encouraged to wear masks when picking up and dropping off tests. If a customer has symptoms, another individual may pick up and drop off their test for them, with the proof of voucher.

Hartig Drug continues to stock at-home antigen Covid-19 tests if instant results are needed.
