CVS opens new drive-thru test site in Harrisburg


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — On Friday, May 15 CVS Health will open nine new COVID-19 drive-thru test sites across Pennsylvania, including one in Harrisburg.

The new COVID-19 drive-thru test site is located at CVS Pharmacy at 550 North Progress Avenue in Harrisburg.

These new sites will utilize self-swab tests and mark the next phase of the company’s
nationwide COVID-19 testing strategy, announced April 27 at the White House. CVS Health
expects to have up to 1,000 locations across the country offering this service by the end of May,
with the goal of processing up to 1.5 million tests per month, subject to availability of supplies
and lab capacity.

Patients must register in advance at beginning Friday, May 15 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.

CVS says the nine test sites in Pennsylvania are part of the first rollout of new sites, which includes 51 locations in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.

“While the large-scale test sites we’ve been operating since early April have proven successful,
this new approach allows us to utilize our presence in communities across the country and
bring testing closer to home,” said Larry J. Merlo, President and CEO, CVS Health. “Our frontline employees will continue to play a critical role in the testing process, with members of their communities directly benefitting from their dedication and selflessness.”

• CVS Pharmacy, 1034 Second Street, Richboro, PA 18954
• CVS Pharmacy, 760 Miles Road, West Chester, PA 19380
