ATLANTA (AP) - Drive-thru testing for COVID-19 will begin Monday at Georgia Institute of Technology, Gov. Brian Kemp announced.

Kemp said the state is partnering with CVS Health to set up rapid testing that can accommodate multiple lanes of cars at one time at a parking deck on Georgia Tech’s campus in midtown Atlanta. The process is expected to take about 30 minutes from the time of the test to delivery of results, Kemp said in a statement Monday.

“Increased access to rapid testing remains one of our top priorities in order to identify more cases, get Georgians the care they need, and prevent further infection in our communities,” Kemp said.
