Camp Hill, Pennsylvania-based Rite Aid has further expanded its capabilities with five additional drive-through COVID-19 testing sites opening Monday, June 22, through its partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Like Rite Aid’s existing testing sites, the new locations will utilize self-swab nasal tests overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists, and will operate Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Rite Aid’s COVID-19 nasal tests are available for all adults, regardless if they are experiencing virus symptoms, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance. At all testing locations, patients are required to provide government issued identification, be at least 18 years old and need to pre-register online at riteaid.com in order to schedule a time slot for testing.
Now operating 97 total testing sites, Rite Aid will have the capacity to conduct more than 48,000 tests weekly across all locations through online appointments.
The five new testing sites are located at the following Rite Aid stores:
- 76 Smith Street in Perth Amboy, New Jersey;
- 3553 Washington Road in Parlin, New Jersey;
- 101 White Horse Pike in Clementon, New Jersey;
- 2709 Broadway Avenue in Lorain, Ohio; and
- 753 South Grove Street in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Rite Aid has partnered with Verily and will use its Baseline COVID-19 Program to provide screening, scheduling and return of results to participants for Rite Aid testing sites. Rite Aid has selected BioReference Laboratories to provide COVID-19 laboratory testing.
Clinical oversight for the COVID-19 testing program is provided by PWNHealth, a national clinician network that enables safe and easy access to diagnostic testing.
Rite Aid will continue to provide regular updates on the company’s progress with COVID-19 testing.
