Lansing, Mich. (WLNS) — CVS Health has launched a new rapid COVID-19 drive-thru testing site in Dearborn, Michigan, in conjunction with federal and state officials.
The site will provide state residents with rapid COVID-19 testing and on-the-spot results at no cost, using the new Abbott ID NOW™ COVID-19 test. CVS Health has opened similar large-scale rapid testing sites in Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and since March the company has conducted more than 35,000 COVID-19 tests.
MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic inside CVS Pharmacy locations, will oversee the Dearborn testing site with assistance from CVS pharmacists.
All locations are named: “CVS Health COVID-19 Testing Site – By Appointment Only” and are by appointment only and patients MUST schedule at: https://www.cvs.com/minuteclinic/covid-19-testing
Where testing will be conducted
Testing will take place in the parking lot at the Henry Ford Centennial Library (16301 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, MI). Patients will receive results on-site so they can properly quarantine or seek treatment as appropriate. No COVID-19 testing will take place at CVS Pharmacy or MinuteClinic locations.
Who can get tested?
Rapid COVID-19 testing will be available to eligible individuals who meet criteria established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to state residency and age guidelines. Patients will need to pre-register in advance online at CVS.com in order to schedule a same-day time slot for testing. To help ensure the safety of both patients and health care providers, the testing site cannot accommodate walk-ups and patients are required to remain in their vehicles throughout the entire testing process.
