Two CVS Pharmacy locations on the Grand Strand will begin offering coronavirus drive-thru testing Friday, according to a release from CVS Health.

The new sites utilize self-swab tests at drive-thru CVS locations throughout the state.

Patients who are eligible for a test based on CDC guidelines and state or local requirements will first need to register for an appointment on the CVS website.

A complete list of CVS Pharmacy drive-thru test sites can be found here. A team member will observe the process to ensure it is done properly.

Tests will be sent to an independent, third-party lab for processing and the results will be available in approximately three days.

Numerous new CVS testing sites will serve communities with the greatest need for support, as measured by the CDC's Social Vulnerability Index, the release said.

The SVI tracks census variables including poverty, lack of access to transportation and crowded housing "that may weaken a community's ability to prepare for and recover from hazardous events like natural disasters and disease outbreaks", the company said.

CVS Health Corp and unmanned vehicle delivery Nuro in June will start testing a service that drops prescriptions and other essentials free of charge to some customers in the Houston area, the companies said on Thursday. "We need to keep working to expand testing, which is why it is crucial that Michiganders who have COVID-19 symptoms, even mild ones, or have been in contact with someone who has the virus can get tested", Governor Whitmer said. "Opening access to testing to more locations using our drive-thru window represents an important milestone in our response to the pandemic".
