Company officials say customers ages 3 and up do not need to be experiencing COVID symptoms to have a test -- which is in the form of a self-administered kit -- but they must sign up online before visiting. Tests take about five minutes, and kits are then sent to a lab to be processed. Customers can expect their results in three to five business days. Click here for more information.
