Gov. Greg Abbott just announced that CVS will open 44 new drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites across the state of Texas. Five are in Austin, according to a news release:


  • 5526 South Congress Avenue, Austin, TX 78745
  • 2610 Lake Austin Boulevard, Austin, TX 78703
  • 11300 North Lamar Boulevard, Austin, TX 78753
  • 11725 North FM 620, Austin, TX 78750

The tests will be self-administered but supervised:

Patients will be required to stay in their cars and 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.

Registrations for the tests begins online tomorrow. CVS plans to have 80 testing sites in Texas by the end of May, according to the release.
