HARTFORD – (from a press release issued by Gov. Lamont’s office) CVS opened 13 new COVID-19 test sites Friday at select CVS Pharmacy drive-thru locations in Connecticut.  One of the test sites is in East Lyme at the CVS Pharmacy at 15 Chesterfield Road. These test sites come in addition to the 12 locations the company previously opened in the state on May 15, making a total of 25 sites across the state.

These new sites will utilize self-swab tests and will be available to individuals meeting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria, in addition to age guidelines.

Patients must register in advance at CVS.com to schedule an appointment. Upon arriving for their appointment, patients must stay in their cars and will be directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window, where they will be provided with a test kit and given instructions.

A CVS Pharmacy team member will observe the self-swab process to ensure it is done properly. Tests will be sent to an independent, third-party lab for processing and the results will be available in approximately three days.
