“Working with partners like Good Samaritan is an important part of our comprehensive strategy to increase access to COVID-19 testing,” said David Casey, chief diversity officer of CVS Health, also said in the news release. “This joint effort allows us to tap into the network of a trusted organization with strong community ties to further expand testing in areas of greatest need.”
CVS Health already is offering drive-thru testing at 1,000 CVS Pharmacy locations nationwide. Since mid-March, the company has performed nearly 200,000 tests nationwide, according to the release.
Patients will need to meet criteria established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to be eligible for testing. They will also have to meet age guidelines.
Results will be provided on-the-spot.
