Drive-through COVID-19 testing will be available a little closer to Weston, according to State Senator Will Haskell, who tells us Bethel's CVS Pharmacy is one of 12 new testing sites in Connecticut.
Bethel's CVS Pharmacy is at 7 Durant Avenue. Testing is not done inside a CVS retail location. Patients drive to the pharmacy window, stay in their cars, and are given a self-swab test kit and instructions.
A CVS Pharmacy employee observes the self-swab process, ensuring it is done properly. The sample is sent to an independent third-party lab for processing. Results will be available in about three days.
"I encourage anyone in the region who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or who meets the CDC criteria for testing, to utilize this new resource," said Sen. Haskell. "It could save lives and improve patient outcomes."
