Virginia News

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — CVS Health will open 39 new drive-thru coronavirus testing sites Friday across Virginia.

According to the company, the self-swab tests are free — the tests are covered under a program funded by the Department of Health and Human Services. CVS will be accepting insurance at the drive-thru test sites. 

Since the end of April, the company has been committed to establishing 1,000 testing locations across the country.

“CVS Health has been at the forefront of helping our nation scale-up COVID-19 testing capabilities, and we’re proud to meet our goal of establishing 1,000 testing sites in communities across the country,” President and CEO, CVS Health Larry J. Merlo said.

Governor Northam said he appreciates CVS for stepping up and helping Virginia residents.

“I appreciate CVS stepping up to help more Virginians get access to testing–at no cost, even if you don’t have insurance. These 39 sites are an important part of Virginia’s testing plan,” Northam said.

Self-swab tests will be available for people who meet the criteria issued by the CDC and the state. To get a test you must register in advance at CVS.com and schedule an appointment.
