CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid expanded coronavirus testing criteria at their 25 self-swab sites across the country today, four of which are in Ohio.
Now, anyone 18 or older showing new coronavirus symptoms outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are eligible, no doctor's note required. The testing sites are through a partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
- shortness of breath
- repeated shaking with chills
- muscle pain
- sore throat
- new loss of taste or smell
"More than fifty percent of our locations have a drive thru and all Rite Aid pharmacists know how to order and administer tests," Rite Aid CEO Heyward Donigan said in a press release. "We are committed to providing more access to COVID-19 self-testing sites and will continue working closely with HHS to explore how we can use our retail locations and expertise to further expand access, testing sites and forms of testing throughout the communities we serve.
To get tested, all you need is a government ID and an email address. Those wishing to get tested need to pre-register on Rite Aid's website to get a time slot.
The four self-testing locations in Ohio are:
- 4053 South Main St., Akron, OH 44319
- 5795 State Road, Parma, OH 44134
- 7225 Airport Highway, Holland, OH 43528
