Building on the company’s comprehensive efforts to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, CVS Health has opened 55 new COVID-19 test sites at select CVS Pharmacy drive-thru locations across North Carolina.

The CVS on South Union Street in Concord and the CVS on Shiloh Church Road at Renaissance Square will be testing sites.

The new sites will utilize self-swab tests and deliver on the company’s commitment to establish 1,000 locations across the country by the end of May as originally announced April 27. These new test sites help enable a goal of processing up to 1.5 million tests per month, subject to availability of supplies and lab capacity.

“CVS Health has been at the forefront of helping our nation scale-up COVID-19 testing capabilities, and we’re proud to meet our goal of establishing 1,000 testing sites in communities across the country,” said Larry J. Merlo, president and CEO, CVS Health. “Opening access to testing in more locations using our drive-thru window represents an important milestone in our response to the pandemic. We remain grateful for the daily efforts and sacrifices of our front-line colleagues who make the continued expansion of our testing possible.”

More than half of the company’s 1,000 test sites will serve communities with the greatest need for support, as measured by the CDC’s Social Vulnerability Index. The index tracks a variety of 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.

“We are pleased that CVS will be opening testing sites across North Carolina with a special focus on communities in need,” said Gov. Roy Cooper. “We know that more testing is key to beating COVID-19, and we look forward to continuing to work with CVS and other partners to meet and exceed our testing goals.”

Self-swab tests will be available to people meeting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria, in addition to state and age guidelines. Patients must register in advance at to schedule an appointment. Patients will be required to stay in their cars and will be directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window, where they will be provided with a test kit and given instructions, and 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 about three days.

Testing will not take place inside any retail locations, and CVS Pharmacy, HealthHUB and MinuteClinic will continue to serve customers and patients.
