Rite Aid Is Adding More Free COVID-19 Testing Locations: Here’s What You Need to Know

Free Covid-19 Testing in Rite AidCanva

Rite Aid has recently added over 160 free COVID-19 testing locations across the country in their baseline COVID-19 testing program in support of community-based testing initiatives. As they tweeted yesterday, additional free testing locations should make it more convenient and easier for people to get tested whenever they need to. Here's everything that you need to know.

Rite Aid Is Expanding Their COVID-19 Testing

Rite Aid has partnered with Verily to use its Baseline COVID-19 Program to provide screening, scheduling, and return of results to participants at Rite Aid testing sites, all for free. The Baseline COVID-19 Program is an effort to expand access to COVID-19 screening and testing in order to help those with concerns about the virus to possibly get tested at no cost as well as enable public health officials to target testing efforts.

They’re also working with the White House Coronavirus Task Force and Department of Health and Human Services to provide self-swabbing COVID-19 testing at selected stores. Eligibility will be determined based on CDC recommendations and local Department of Health guidelines

This program is intended to expand access to COVID-19 risk screening and testing. It is not intended for people who are experiencing symptoms such as severe cough, severe shortness of breath, severe fever, or other concerning symptoms that may need more immediate medical care. 

As Rite Aid tweeted yesterday, to find out where to get tested for COVID-19, check the full list of Rite Aid Coronavirus testing locations across the United States on their Project Baseline map. These new 161 locations even include the West Coast.

How to Get Tested For COVID-19

In order to get tested, you must meet the following conditions:

  • you must be 18 years of age or older
  • able to get to a testing site location
  • be willing to sign a COVID-19 Public Health authorization form and lab consent.

You must complete the Pre-screening online and set up a Google Account (if you do not have one already) in order to join the COVID-19 testing program. Creating an account allows you to take the screener and schedule an appointment. You will also be able to get your test results via email. There are no in-store sign ups.

What Is the Process of COVID-19 Testing In Rite Aid

Once your appointment is scheduled, you will be confirmed with the date, time, and address of the Rite Aid location. At the time of the appointment, you will need a government issued ID for verification. Testing will take place in the store parking lot, and you will have to remain inside your vehicle at all times with the windows up unless otherwise directed. 

A Rite Aid Pharmacist will place a pre-labeled testing swab kit on a table and do a brief demonstration of the swabbing process. Do as you’re told to complete the process. You will receive your test results via email and via phone if you are positive within two to seven days.

Don’t you have access to a Rite Aid? Don’t worry, other pharmacies such as CVS and Walgreens also have drive-through and appointment options for getting free testing for COVID-19.
