Rite Aid announced Thursday that all of its testing sites will expand their COVID-19 testing criteria to include asymptomatic adults.

Effective immediately, adults 18 years of age or older, even if they are not exhibiting virus symptoms, will now be eligible to pre-register and schedule a testing time slot on the company’s website.

Virginia has two Rite Aid stores offering coronavirus testing - one in Colonial Heights and the other at 2293 Upton Road in Virginia Beach.

Additionally, on May 11, the drugstore chain will open 46 additional self-swab testing facilities. None of the announced facilities are in Virginia.

When the new facilities open, Rite Aid will operate 71 self-swab locations across 12 states and will have the capacity to conduct up to 10,000 tests daily across all locations through online appointments.
