The new sites will utilize self-swab tests, which will be available to people who meet
criteria, in addition to state and age guidelines.
Patients must register in advance
beginning Friday, June 12 to schedule an appointment.
There are no out-of-pocket costs for these tests for insured or uninsured patients.
Patients will be required to stay in their cars and will be directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window or a location in the parking lot at a few stores, where they will be provided with a test kit and given instructions.
CVS pharmacy employees will watch the self-swab process to ensure it is done properly. Tests will be sent to an independent, third-party lab for processing and the results will be available in about three days, according to CVS.
