MARYLAND, USA — Two days after authorizing Maryland's 1,200 pharmacies to order and administer COVID-19 tests, Gov. Larry Hogan announced that 17 CVS locations in the state would offer drive-thru testing.
Patients will stay in their cars the whole time, and be given a self-swab kit and instructions. A CVS pharmacist will watch as the patient does the swab to ensure it's being done correctly. The test will then be sent to a third-party lab for processing, and results will be received in approximately three days.
"Following our announcement that Maryland has reached a critical milestone in its long-term COVID-19 testing strategy by dramatically expanding the availability of testing for residents, these new, additional sites are another important step to further increase testing access for communities across Maryland," Gov. Hogan said. "We will continue working closely with CVS Health and all of our partners in the private sector, along with Maryland’s world-class health care systems and local governments, to protect residents’ health and safety and support our state’s safe and gradual recovery."
Testing at CVS locations begins May 22, but unlike the state-operated testing that began Thursday at Timonium Fairgrounds in Baltimore County, patients will need an appointment. Register with CVS in advance here..
