Last month, we shared that CVS was offering Drive up COVID-19 testing at three locations in MoCo. They have since added one more location, and are now offering testing at the following places:
799 Rockville Pike, ROCKVILLE, MD 20852
360 Hungerford Dr., Space 410, ROCKVILLE, MD 20850
7809 Wisconsin Ave, BETHESDA, MD 20814
12215 Darnestown RD, GAITHERSBURG, MD 20878
They plan to expand and offer even more testing sites in the coming weeks.
As mentioned on the CVS website, a prescription from a healthcare provider is not needed to be tested. However, you will need to answer questions to see if you qualify before you are able to make an appointment.
Patients are expected to take the test in their vehicle and are asked to either swab their own nose or to bring someone with them to complete the swab. For those who are wondering, this test is supposed to be pain free– the swab only has to go one inch into the nostril, unlike some of the other test methods you may have seen.
