ORLANDO, Fla. – On Friday, CVS will open 37 new drive-thru coronavirus testing sites to its pharmacies across Florida, bringing its total number of Sunshine State testing sites to 47.

Orlando, Winter Park and The Villages are among the cities that will receive the new sites.

“As we move into a new phase of combating the pandemic and as communities begin to safely open up their local economies, we need testing to be easily accessible,” said Dr. Troyen Brennan, chief medical officer and executive vice president of CVS Health. “By further expanding the number of drive-thru test sites available across our retail network, more people can be tested closer to home in a familiar setting.”

Only those who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria will be able to get tested and advanced registration is required.

Patients will stay in their vehicles and go to a pharmacy drive-thru window where a staff member will provide them with a kit and instruct them on how to self-perform a nasal swab.

The collected samples will be sent to an independent lab for testing. Results are expected within three days.

Eventually, CVS hopes to have 1,000 testing sites across the country.
