Toms River Rite Aid Will Start Self-Swab COVID-19 Tests On Wednesday
COVID-19 coronavirus testing will expand this week when the Rite Aid on Mule Road in Toms River starts a drive-through self-swab testing program.
According to a press release from Rite Aid, the Mule Road store will join about two dozen other locations across the country that are administering drive-through tests. They expect to be able to perform 200 tests a day.
To be tested at Rite Aid, patients will have to fill out an online questionnaire to determine their eligibility, and make an appointment in advance. You can find their web portal by clicking here.
The New Jersey Department of Health's website has the following guidance for who should get tested:
At this time, testing is prioritized for individuals who are sick with symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath where they need hospitalization, those who are close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases, and individuals who traveled to/from highly affected areas.
The testing will start this Wednesday, April 22nd, and will run from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. at the Rite Aid at 31 Mule Road in Toms River.
