The Kroger Health COVIDCare Plus program is being launched by the grocer's healthcare division to help businesses and brands alike get back to daily business operations in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The employer-focused program is centered around the brand's COVID-19 Home Collection Kit that enables a person to perform a self-administered test and connect directly with a licensed healthcare provider for supervision. The program aims to help increase a company's ability to get employees tested to prevent spread and enhance peace of mind for everyone.
President of Kroger Health Colleen Lindholz spoke on the Kroger Health COVIDCare Plus program saying, "We know testing continues to be a critical pillar in the fight against COVID-19. And yet, our country faces ongoing challenges to keep pace with demand. At Kroger Health, we are grateful to be part of the solution by providing employers with COVID-19 testing that has a short turnaround time. This is paramount to keeping American businesses open and people at work."
