Rite Aid opened a self-swab coronavirus testing site in Rockland County Saturday morning.
The site on Route 303 in Valley Cottage is one of two self-swab sites opening in the tristate area in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The other location is in Waldwick, New Jersey.
The testing takes place in the store's parking lot and utilizes a self-swab nasal test which is overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists. People must remain in their vehicles the entire time they are tested.
The testing is free, but eligibility is based on guidelines established by the CDC. Eligible people are required to preregister and schedule appointments on the Rite Aid's website.
The site will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through online appointments. Rite Aid says it expects to expand COVID-19 testing to key hot spots including New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Michigan and Virginia.
