How is my sample for testing collected?

You will be given a swab and asked to collect a sample of nasal secretions. This is done by inserting the swab approximately 1 inch into the nasal passage (midway) with the more visible drainage or the nostril that is more congested if drainage is not present. The swab is rotated several times and removed gently, and this process is repeated on the other side. Please note that you must administer your own swab to test. Testing-site colleagues do not administer the self-swab test.

 

If there is no location near me, how can I get tested?

No‐cost drive‐thru testing is available at select CVS Pharmacy locations. See if there is a testing location near you. If there is not a location near you, we recommend contacting your primary care provider or your state's Department of Health to find out how to get tested in your state.

 

What information do I need to provide to get tested?

You are required to provide, at a minimum, your first name, last name, date of birth, address, phone number, race and ethnicity.
