NATIONAL — Rite Aid is offering no-charge testing for those over 13-years-old, regardless of whether the individual is symptomatic or asymptomatic.

Previously, testing was only available to adults. The expanded program allows parents or legal guardians of individuals 13-18 years of age to create Baseline COVID-19 accounts so that they may be screened and tested. Parents or legal guardians must provide consent for individuals under 18, show their government issued identification and must accompany their children to the appointment and supervise them during the test.

At all testing locations, adult patients will be required to provide government issued identification and need to make an appointment online.

99 additional drive-through locations will open on Tuesday, December 22, through its partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
