"Walgreens is a great partner ... and I am grateful for their support to expand testing capacity in the metro area. I encourage all Georgians in the region who feel they are experiencing symptoms to long on and schedule an appointment," Kemp said in the release.
The site will be able to conduct up to 150 tests per day, and testing will take place outdoors where Walgreens pharmacists will oversee patients' self-administration of the test inside their cars using Abbott's ID Now COVID-19 test. To receive a test, individuals must complete an online health assessment to determine eligibility at www.walgreens.com/coronavirus.
Testing is available at no cost to eligible individuals by appointment seven days per week from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
