ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- Through a partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Rite Aid pharmacies will be expanding its free no-charge COVID-19 testing capabilities with 60 additional drive-through locations in New Jersey starting on Friday, January 22.
In addition, no-charge testing will now be available to children ages four and older at all new and existing drive-through testing sites for those experiencing virus symptoms, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance. Previously, testing had been available to individuals 13 years of age and older.
The Robbinsville Rite-Aid located at 2370 Route 33 will continue to provide drive-thru self-swab nasal testing overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists. They are available Monday through Friday 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.until 5 p.m.
At all testing locations, patients are required to pre-register online at www.riteaid.com in order to schedule a time slot for testing.
Minor children between the ages of 4 and 18 must access testing with parent or legal guardian consent, and attendance and supervision of the minor at the testing appointment with a photo ID. For children ages 4 through 12 a parent or legal guardian can create a Project Baseline account and follow the steps to indicate who the test is for. For children ages 13 to 17, creation of a Project Baseline account should happen only under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian.
