Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Walmart's drive-thru coronavirus testing sites will be hosted on the 'far edge' of store parking lots, internal memo says”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon announced Friday that the company had agreed to host drive-thru coronavirus testing sites in the parking lots of some stores.

The company later shared a memo with store management that revealed some further details, including plans to place the testing sites at the "far edge" of parking lots.

"By now you've likely seen the news reports that Walmart, along with other retailers and companies, is being asked by the federal government for support in standing up drive-thru testing sites for COVID-19," states the memo, which was reviewed by Business Insider. "This will include a small number of Walmart locations in select communities across the country."

Walmart is working with the federal government to finalize details of the new testing sites, the memo said. 

"This is a government testing initiative, so location decisions and timing will be made by them," the memo stated. "For the limited number of stores chosen, testing will be in-car and at the far edge of the parking lot and all testing will be administered by federal health officials," the memo said.
