That's after the CDC announced new testing guidelines.

CVS plans to set up self-testing sites in parking lots and drive-thru windows by the end of next month.

It says it plans to test 1 and a half million people monthly.

Walgreens will open drive-thru testing sites at stores across the country.

Right now the chain has 20 of those sites open in 11 states.
