CVS is expanding the number of locations for drive-thru coronavirus testing.
The pharmacy announced plans to open 1,000 sites across the country.
On Thursday, CVS rolled out additional locations in states like California, Florida, Ohio, Georgia, Michigan, Massachusetts, Maine, and Rhode Island.
According to CVS, the new testing facilities will be open on Friday.
Patients are given self-swab tests at the drive-thru facilities. The swabs are send to a third party and results are returned in about three days.
“CVS Health has been at the forefront of helping our nation scale-up COVID-19 testing capabilities, and we’re proud to meet our goal of establishing 1,000 testing sites in communities across the country,” said Larry Merlo, president and CEO of CVS Health. “Opening access to testing to more locations using our drive-thru window represents an important milestone in our response to the pandemic. We remain grateful for the daily efforts and sacrifices of our front-line colleagues who make the continued expansion of our testing possible.”
You must register in advance on CVS.com. Testing kits will be handed out through the pharmacy drive-thru. The self-service tests are then sent to a third-party and results are given in around three days.
