The community testing sites use a self-administered nasal swab test that allows those being tested to swab their own nose on-site while in their vehicles—observed by a trained Walmart pharmacist to ensure the sample is taken correctly—and drop the sealed sample into a container on their way out of the drive-through site.

In some locations, we are providing access to testing via a curbside pickup of take-home, self-administer collection kits. Customers can request a test kit at, which will screen and schedule appointments for pickup for those individuals that meet medical eligibility for testing.

Once on-site, those picking up a kit will park in the pharmacy pickup parking spaces and call the number on the sign; those picking up a kit will need to wear a mask and stay in their cars for verification and ID check. For the safety of all those on-site, the testing site is not available to those who walk up.

The take-home, self-collection kit will use a self-administer nasal swab test that will allow those being tested to swab their own nose at their convenience at home. Once the sample has been collected, patients can follow the directions on how to ship the test kit for processing, following the included instructions.
