MinuteClinic: COVID-19 resources

During this time when access to routine health care is being disrupted, we continue to be focused on our goal to provide our patients with affordable, high-quality care in a safe environment. MinuteClinic remains a convenient option – open seven days a week, including evenings and weekends.

CVS Health and MinuteClinic are collaborating closely with local health departments related to coronavirus (COVID-19).

At this time, we are not able to test for the COVID-19 virus inside MinuteClinic.  Learn more about how CVS Health is supporting access to COVID-19 testing.


Additional steps to protect patients

In order to support efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, and in line with CDC and State Health Department guidance for infection control and prevention, MinuteClinic is making the following temporary changes to help keep our patients, customers and colleagues safe during this time:

  • While you can easily make an appointment online, we are also accepting walk-in patients at many of our clinics.

  • To follow social distancing guidelines, we’ve eliminated the waiting room. After you check-in at the kiosk, you will need to wait in your car or outside the store until the provider calls you in.

  • You will also be asked to wear a mask throughout your visit, which we can provide, if you do not have one of your own.

  • Whether you register for an appointment or walk-in for care, you will be asked some questions to determine your risk for COVID-19. If your symptoms or exposure history suggest you may be at risk, we will share information about how to find the most convenient location for COVID-19 testing.

    • Although we are not testing for COVID-19 inside our MinuteClinics right now, no-cost testing is available at pharmacy drive-thru windows at more than 1,400 CVS Pharmacy locations across the country.

  • We’re adding steps to further clean and disinfect the kiosk and the clinic between visits, and ensuring our providers have the appropriate PPE, including gloves, masks and protective eyewear.


Health services

Although we are currently not able to test for COVID-19, MinuteClinic providers continue to be available to support the routine health needs of our patients at all of our locations. Our providers can still evaluate, diagnose and treat common injuries, illnesses and skin conditions, provide vaccines and help manage chronic conditions.

E-Clinic visits

Not all health care has to be delivered in person. MinuteClinic now offers E-Clinic visits for many common illnesses, skin conditions and chronic care monitoring. We encourage you to learn more about how to access virtual care at MinuteClinic.
