(FinancialHealth.net) – President Donald Trump wants to open America for business again as soon as possible. Medical experts agree the safest way to make that happen is by testing more people to make sure they aren’t COVID-19 carriers. That’s what makes an announcement from the drug store Rite Aid so exciting.
On April 18, the company said they’re expanding their coronavirus self-swab, drive-through testing. The new sites will open on April 20 in four states. There are seven locations that’ll help about 200 people each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., 7 days a week.
People who live in New York, New Jersey, Ohio and Michigan can find the sites at the following locations:
- Holland, OH: 7225 Airport Hwy.
- Macomb, MI: 46977 Romeo Plank Rd.
- Eaton Rapids, MI: 715 South Main St.
- New Hartford, NY: 4854 Commercial Dr.
- Parma, OH: 5795 State Rd.
- Swartz Creek, MI: 9090 Miller Rd.
- Barrington, NJ: 501 Clements Bridge Rd.
To receive a test, patients must meet the guidelines established by the CDC.
State and local health departments use CDC guidance to work with individual clinicians to make decisions about testing for the virus that causes #COVID19.

Rite Aid’s testing sites are going to be a big help. President Donald Trump recently updated the country about the virus and said 4.18 million Americans have already been swabbed to see if they’ve been infected. That’s a new milestone for the country and gets us one step closer to normalcy.
