BOSTON — CVS Health announced Thursday it is doubling its drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites across the country, including 12 new testing sites in Massachusetts.

The tests involve self-swab test kits the customer uses while being monitored by a pharmacy employee. Most results will be available in two-to-three days.

CVS said in a release that there is no cost for the test and patients must register in advance at CVS.com.
