Twin River Casino Hotel in Lincoln, Rhode Island is serving as a drive-through site for the rapid COVID-19 tests.
Marc Crisafulli, Executive Vice President of Twin River Worldwide Holdings and President of its Rhode Island properties, said that Rhode Island Governor Raimondo selected the Twin River site and entered into a partnership with CVS Health to make free, rapid COVID-19 tests available to all Rhode Islanders. This testing site will use the new Abbott ID Now system and will be able to perform approximately 1,000 tests per day, doubling Rhode Island’s current testing capacity.
“We are pleased to offer Twin River Casino Hotel in Lincoln as a rapid COVID-19 drive through testing site,” said Mr. Crisafulli. “We are supporting the efforts of the RI Department of Health, CVS Health, the Rhode Island State Police and the RI National Guard to ensure as smooth a testing experience as possible. This level of collaboration truly is representative of the fact that we are all in this together, and we stand ready to do all we can to support the State’s efforts to manage the spread of the virus.”
Rapid COVID-19 testing will be available to individuals who are symptomatic and meet criteria established by the CDC. Patients will need to pre-register in advance online at CVS.com in order to schedule a same-day time slot for testing.
