CVS Pharmacy will open seven new coronavirus test sites in Omaha, Lincoln and La Vista on Friday. The sites will use self-swab tests. Participants must register in advance and schedule an appointment at CVS.com.
"In communities throughout the state we are working to meet the needs of Nebraskans to advance more testing and our private-sector partners like CVS Health are playing a critical role in this effort," says Governor Pete Ricketts.
People will be required to stay in their cars and will be 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.
The new CVS testing sites in Nebraska include:
6901 South 84th Street, La Vista
4840 Dodge Street, Omaha
14460 West Maple Road, Omaha
1550 South Street, Lincoln
5611 South 27th Street, Lincoln
4800 O Street, Lincoln
5566 South 56th Street, Lincoln
