CVS Drive-Thru Testing Sites Open in Mass Tomorrow…Two in Western Mass…No Berkshire Locations
Covid-19 drive-thru window testing sites will open at 10 CVS locations in Massachusetts tomorrow according to a story posted by WWLP. CVS locations in the Berkshires are not on the list for one of these drive-thru sites. The closest location in Western Mass is in West Springfield and Northampton.
According to WWLP additional testing sites in the state will be announced in the next two weeks. The WWLP story sites a news release sent to the station that states that the drive-thru sites will have self-swab testing.
Patients will need to meet the criteria set by the Centers of Disease Control and will have to register in advance through CVS.com.

The results should be available to them in about three days after being processed at a lab.
