The new sites will officially open on Monday, June 22. They will provide self-swab nasal tests overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists, modeling the company’s current testing sites, and will be open from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Rite Aid currently operates 97 testing sites and will have the capacity to conduct more than 48,000 tests weekly, it said.

  • 3553 Washington Road in Parlin;
  • 101 White Horse Pike in Clementon.
