CVS is expanding the number of free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites, adding 200 last week to 1,400 testing sites nation-wide. Among those added last week was a drive-thru testing site at 1676 W. Katella Avenue (the corner of Katella and Euclid).

The other CVS free testing sites are located at 510 S. Beach Boulevard (across Beach from West Anaheim Medical Center) and 611 S. Brookhurst Street (at the intersection of Brookhurst and Orange).

Appointments are required and can be scheduled online at

Patients have to remain in their cars and will be directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window or a location in the parking lot, and given a self-administered test kit and instructions.  CVS Pharmacy staff observe to ensure it’s done correctly.

Tests are processed at an independent, third-party lab for processing and results available in about three days.
