According to the press release, in addition to increasing the number of drive-thru sites, CVS has expanded its network of independent third-party lab partners in an effort to help improve turnaround time for the delivery of test results. The majority of test results across the country should be available within 2-5 days.

“Our national scale and local community presence enable us to uniquely expand people’s access to safe and effective COVID-19 testing options and respond to a need for increased testing capacity,” said Emmanuel Kolady, senior vice president of CVS Health. “We remain grateful to our frontline colleagues who make these testing sites possible and whose dedication has allowed us to keep our stores and MinuteClinics open for customers seeking supplies and patients who need care.”
