Rite Aid is further expanding its no-charge COVID-19 testing capabilities with 99 additional drive-through locations opening on Tuesday, December 22, through its partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), according to a press release.

Rite Aid's COVID-19 testing service will expand coast-to-coast, with new locations in California, Nevada, Washington, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland.

Like Rite Aid's existing drive-through testing sites, the new locations will utilize simple self-swab nasal tests overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists and will operate Monday through Friday. Rite Aid's COVID-19 nasal tests are available for all individuals 13 years of age or older, regardless if they are experiencing virus symptoms, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance.

Rite Aid now operates 400 total testing sites across 16 states.

Rite Aid partners with Verily and its Baseline COVID-19 Testing Program to provide screening, scheduling and return of results to participants for Rite Aid testing sites. Clinical oversight for the COVID-19 testing program is provided by PWNHealth, a national clinician network.
