“Since opening our first test site in March, we’ve been able to quickly adapt to the changing landscape in order to make it easier for people in the communities we serve to access testing,” said Jon Roberts, COO of CVS Health and acting president of CVS Pharmacy. “We recognize the critical role testing plays in helping to manage the spread of the virus and are incredibly proud of how our teams have responded to this need while continuing to take care of our customers, clients and patients.”

Those looking to get tested must register in advance.

Anyone age 12 to 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when getting tested.
