New COVID-19 Testing Sites at CVS Pharmacy Locations in Maryland
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and CVS Health announced 17 new COVID-19 test sites at select CVS Pharmacy drive-thru locations across Maryland. The opening of additional test sites across the state will be announced by the end of the month.
This announcement comes two days after Governor Hogan signed an emergency order authorizing the state’s nearly 1,200 pharmacies to order and administer COVID-19 tests as part of Maryland’s long-term testing strategy.
Self-swab tests will be available to individuals meeting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria, in addition to age guidelines. Patients must register in advance at CVS.com beginning Friday, May 22 to schedule an appointment. Patients will be required to stay in their cars and 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. Tests will be sent to an independent, third-party lab for processing and the results will be available in approximately three days.
Testing will not take place inside any retail locations, and CVS Pharmacy, HealthHUB, and MinuteClinic will continue to serve customers and patients."
