CVS opening new COVID-19 testing sites in Arizona

Patients stay in their cars for the drive-thru examination.

CVS will open 10 new COVID-19 test sites at select drive-thru locations across Arizona starting Friday, May 15.

The health store says the new sites will utilize self-swab tests. Those tests will adhere to CDC standards along with age guidelines.

Patients have to stay in their cars and will be given a test kit and instructions on how to do the self-swab test. Results are expected to be relayed in approximately three days. Patients must register ahead of time on the CVS website to schedule an appointment.

CVS Health expects to have up to 1,000 locations across the country across the country offering this service by the end of May, with the goal of processing up to 1.5 million tests per month, subject to availability of supplies and lab capacity.
