CVS To Open 44 Testing Sites Across Texas

Kelly C. Gamble

AUSTIN, TX — CVS Health will open 44 new testing sites for the coronavirus at drive-through locations across Texas, officials announced on Thursday.

The new sites utilizing self-swab tests will be available to individuals who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria and age guidelines, officials said. Patients must register in advance at starting this Friday to schedule an appointment.

“Texas continues to rapidly ramp up COVID-19 testing in our communities, and these new drive-thru testing sites provided by CVS Health will further expand access to these tests throughout the state,” Gov. Greg Abbott said in a prepared statement. “I thank CVS Health for establishing these drive-thru testing sites here in the Lone Star State. We are committed to working with our health partners in the public and private sectors to expand our testing capabilities, protect public health, and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.”

Added Larry J. Merlo, President and CEO, CVS Health: “While the large-scale test sites we’ve been operating since early April have proven successful, this new approach allows us to utilize our presence in communities across the country and bring testing closer to home. Our frontline employees will continue to play a critical role in the testing process, with members of their communities directly benefitting from their dedication and selflessness.”

Those availing themselves of the testing sites will be required to stay in their cars and be directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window where they will be provided with a test kit and given instructions. A CVS Pharmacy team member will observe the self swab process to ensure it is done properly, officials described. After that, tests will be sent to an independent, third-party lab for processing and the results will be available in approximately three days.

CVS Health plans to have over 80 drive-thru testing locations in Texas by the end of May, according to the governor. More information about CVS Health and their testing sites can be found at their COVID-19 resource center.
