The following test sites will open at CVS Pharmacy locations on Friday, May 15:

CVS says the new sites will use self-swab test and is available to those who meet the CDC criteria for testing. Patients must register in advance at, beginning Friday, to schedule an appointment.

Those with an appointment must stay in their cars. Then, they'll be directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window where they will be provided with a test kit and instructions. A pharmacy team member will observe the self-swab process. 

Those tests will be sent to a third-party laboratory to be processed, and results will be available in about three days, CVS says.
