Rite Aid significantly expanded its COVID-19 testing effort with the addition of 46, no-charge testing sites and 11 new locations within New Jersey, most of which will operate through its stores’ drive-through windows, beginning May 11.
Rite Aid is also expanding COVID-19 testing criteria at all testing sites to include adults who are not exhibiting symptoms of the virus, effective immediately in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance.
Rite Aid has the capacity to conduct up to 10,000 tests daily across all locations through online appointments.
All Rite Aid COVID-19 testing locations use self-swab nasal tests overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists. At all testing locations, patients are required to provide identification, be at least 18 years old, and need to pre-register online to schedule a time for testing.
Rite Aid will now operate 71 testing sites across twelve states through its partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). In April, Rite Aid announced the opening of three locations in the Garden State.
“Rite Aid has been at the forefront of helping our nation scale up COVID-19 testing capabilities, and we’re proud to announce the addition of 46 new testing sites,” said Chief Operating Officer Jim Peters. “Opening testing to asymptomatic individuals, as well as providing more locations using our drive-through window, represent important milestones in our response to the pandemic. We remain grateful for the daily efforts and sacrifices of our front-line associates who make the continued expansion of our testing possible.”
