Coronavirus In Pennsylvania: Rite Aid Adds Drive-Thru COVID-19 Test Site In Monroeville

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Rite Aid says it plans to open drive-by coronavirus testing sites at stores in multiple states, including Pennsylvania.

The company used a pilot site in Philadelphia and is now adding more sites, including one at the Rite Aid in Monroeville on William Penn Highway.

That site will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week and can conduct about 200 self-swab nasal tests a day. The tests will be taken in the parking lot.
