Rite Aid opens testing sites in Harrisburg, York Township

Rite Aid opened two self-swab testing sites in the midstate this week with locations in Dauphin and York counties.

Rite Aid began offering the testing at its 2604 Linglestown Road store in Harrisburg on Tuesday and at its 115 Leader Heights Road store in York Township, York County on Thursday.

Both midstate locations are open for testing from 9 am to 5 pm seven days a week and are expected to conduct about 200 tests each day.

Testing is free and only available to individuals who meet criteria for testing established by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Late last month, the Camp Hill-based pharmacy chain piloted its first COVID-19 test at one of its stores in Philadelphia.

The self-swab nasal tests are overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists in a store’s parking lot and individuals looking to be tested must pre-register online.

Following a positive response from the first testing site, Rite Aid announced it would be expanding its tests to Rite Aid Stores in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Michigan, Connecticut and Virginia.
