All three of Rite Aid’s COVID-19 tests (drive-thru, mail-in, at-home) only take a few minutes to complete.
Testing is painless and just requires swabbing midway in both nostrils.
Drive-thru: You’ll receive your results within 2-5 days via the email you provided at registration. If positive, a health care worker will call you.
Mail-in: Return your kit with free overnight return shipping the same day you take your sample. Get results within 2 business days of your kit arriving at the lab.
At-home: Results within 15 minutes. Recommended to test twice within 3 days at least 36 hours apart.
All stores are currently offering "Pay ‘n Go” pre-pay services for prescriptions. Patients who are signed up for Prescription Notifications at eligible stores will have an option to pre-pay for their pharmacy order when they receive their “Your Prescription is Ready” text or email with a link to pay.
We are also encouraging the use of contactless payments like Apple Pay, Android Pay and contactless cards, which allow you to hold your card near the pin pad to be read wirelessly. Contact your bank for more information on contactless credit cards.
A supply of finger covers are available at each register, and customers are encouraged to use one if they need to touch our pin pad payment units.
