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."

I hope testing at CVS comes to Minot ND Roy Kelley . I would be very interested to see if I have the "anti-bodies" in my bloodstream. They say that many people have had the virus and did not know it. I'd like to know if I am one.

This is an important local information, Roy.  We are also experiencing more availability of testing sites here in Sacramento as well.

Roy, you're way ahead of us with some of your re-openings. It was announced today that hair salons in San Francisco won't be opening until July 13. We're all going to look like hippies by then!

On another note- Gene and I had the Covid-19 test yesterday; results: negative. We'll keep on being careful.

Hello Roy - many communities have expanded testing sites.  It's a part of the process.

I think all the testing sites that have opened give us a better view of how much corona virus we actually have in the county
