CVS Health is adding add another 13 COVID-19 test sites at CVS Pharmacy drive-thru locations across the state.

The new sites, which will use self-swab tests, will open today, expanding on the prior 12 that opened on May 15, according to Aetna.

Self-swab tests will be available to people who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria, in addition to age guidelines. Patients must register in advance at CVS.com beginning Friday, May 22 to schedule an appointment.

Anyone taking a test 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 around three days.

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

CVS Health expects to have up to 1,000 locations across the country offering this service by the end of May and process up to 1.5 million tests per month.

The 25 test sites in Connecticut are part of a total of nearly 350 locations across 14 states.

CVS Health said, once fully operational, 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.
