Some Walgreen stores to offer drive-thru COVID-19 testing in Texas

Walgreens will administer COVID-19 testing at some drive-thru locations that will give you a result in 15 minutes, said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott during a press conference on April 8.

Governor Abbott said the tests uses the new ID NOW COVID-19 test, which delivers positive results in as little as five minutes and negative results within 13 minutes and will be available free to people who meet the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Criteria.

Pre-registration is required.

The testing sites will be opened in “hot spot markets with escalating rates of COVID-19 cases, the company said in a press release.

The company said it should be able to test as many as 3,000 people per day and should begin operations this week.

Sites in Texas where testing will be offered were not identified during the press conference.
