Tiburon CVS Pharmacy Now Providing COVID-19 Testing
To help slow the spread of COVID-19, CVS Health is expanding its nationwide testing program. This includes the addition of a self-swab testing at the CVS Pharmacy drive-thru in Tiburon (1599 Tiburon Boulevard). The Marin County location is one of 142 CVS Pharmacy COVID-19 testing locations in California.
Self-swab tests will be available to individuals meeting CDC criteria, in addition to state and age guidelines. Patients must register in advance at CVS.com to schedule an appointment. Patients will be required to stay in their cars and will be directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window or a location in the parking lot at a few stores, where they will be provided with a test kit and given instructions, and 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.
Testing will not take place inside any retail locations, and CVS Pharmacy, HealthHUB and MinuteClinic will continue to serve customers and patients. A complete list of CVS Pharmacy drive-thru test sites can be found here.
