On Friday, May 29, CVS Health will open an additional 15 drive-thru sites for COVID-19 testing in Louisiana.

These new additions will bring the total number of CVS Pharmacy testing sites in the state to 23.

Eight sites in Louisiana, including one at 705 Bertrand Drive in Lafayette, were opened on Friday, May 22. To see those locations, click here.

The company says the additions are part of their goal to open as many as 1,000 test sites across the country by the end of May.

The sites will offer self-swab tests to patients to those who meet the CDC criteria and age guidelines for testing. Patients will be required to register online to schedule an appointment. Registration opens on May 29.

The testing process, according to CVS, will require patients to remain in their cars as they are directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window. There they will be given a test kit and instructions on the self-swab process.

Testing will not take place inside any of the retail locations.

Tests will then be sent to a third-party lab for processing. The company says results will be available in three days.
