FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — Rite Aid announced 99 more COVID-19 self-swab testing sites opening on Tuesday in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, including two new locations in the Fresno area. 

Each testing site will utilize simple self-swab tests overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists and will operate through the store’s drive-through window, officials say.

All individuals 13 years of age or older, regardless if they are exhibiting virus symptoms, are eligible for testing and can begin pre-registering online at www.riteaid.com to schedule a time slot for testing.
