    I took my test at Walgreens last month.. Their rapid test is the red dot and says POC, which is NAAT. Got results in 4 hrs and aruba accepts it. It’s also free. You go on website and make an appointment and drive thru. They give you the swab and you sub yourself.

    Checked the Walgreens near me and they don't offer testing. Good news (?) is I have an underlying condition that puts me at risk so it looks like I can get the test most other places. Just going to have to wait till the last minute and hope for the best it seems.

    Walt, if you go through the Walgreens website it will show all the stores in your area and several towns over that offer it. Only thing is, you can’t book an appt more than 3 days out.

    Thanks so much for this, it's exactly what I needed to know. Testing is now not an issue. The Velocity urgent care a few blocks away carries that test and the results are available the same day. Thanks everyone!
