CVS expands drive-thru coronavirus testing to 45 more N.J. locations


CVS Health has expanded drive-thru coronavirus testing to 45 of its stores in New Jersey, in addition to 11 locations the company opened last month to help fight the pandemic.

Customers must remain in cars, the company said. The pharmacy will provide kits through the drive-thru window and a CVS Pharmacy team member will observe the self-swab process to ensure it is done properly. The new test locations will open on Friday, the company said in a news release.

“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,” said Larry J. Merlo, president and CEO of CVS Health in a statement.

CVS is the latest company to announce its expansion of testing sites in New Jersey.

Last week, Rite Aid announced it is expanding availability of self-administered coronavirus tests to 14 stores in New Jersey, even for adults who are asymptomatic. Walmart has also opened self-swab, drive-thru testing at seven New Jersey locations.
