CVS Health has expanded its COVID-19 testing program by adding 77 additional testing sites at select CVS Pharmacy drive-through locations across the state.

The opening date of these new testing sites is Friday, August 21. This will add to the 221 locations that are already open in Florida.

"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, 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."

In addition to the new testing sites, CVS Health has expanded its network of independent third-party lab partners to help improve the turnaround time for the delivery of test results.

Testing will not take place inside any of the retail locations.
