CVS offering drive- thru COVID-19 tests at Manteca location

CVS Health is now offering drive-thru COVID-19 testing at its Manteca location at 1175 West Lathrop Road.

The testing, which is being offered starting today, joins 107 locations previously opened by CVS Health across California, and are among more than 1,200 locations across 33 states and the District of Columbia.

Here are a few more highlights regarding the new drive-thru testing locations:

*These new sites will utilize self-swab tests and will help enable the company’s goal processing up to 1.5 million tests per month, subject to availability of supplies and lab capacity.

*Self-swab tests will be available to individuals meeting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria, in addition to state and age guidelines.

*Patients must register in advance at beginning Friday, June 12 to schedule an appointment.

*There are no out-of-pocket costs for these tests for both insured and uninsured patients.

*Patients will be required to stay in their cars and will be directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window or a location in the parking lot at a few stores, where they will be provided with a test kit and given instructions.

*A CVS Pharmacy team member will observe the self-swab 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.
