by | May 21, 2020 | COVID-19, Headlines, News

CVS has announced the opening of an additional 12 drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites in Massachusetts. Two of the additional sites will be in Worcester County — in Winchendon and Shrewsbury.

CVS expects the new sites to open on Friday.

The site in Shrewsbury will be at 720 Boston Turnpike Rd. at the site which previously conducted drive-thru testing at a tent in the parking lot.

The Winchendon location is at 301 Central St.

As previously reported, CVS opened 10 test sites in Massachusetts on May 15. That group of sites included 44 West Boylston St. in Worcester and 142 Worcester Rd. in Charlton.

Tests will be available to individuals who meet the Center for Disease Control and Prevention criteria and age guidelines. Patients must pre-register to be tested.

The patient will conduct the test with a CVS Pharmacy team member observing to ensure proper application. An independent, third-party lab processes the self-swab tests.

CVS aims to operate up to 1,000 sites in the US by the end of May, processing up to 1.5 million tests per month.
