Walmart to have drive-thru COVID-19 testing


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Walmart will play a major role in responding to COVID-19 around the country.

CEO Doug McMillon addressed the nation from the White House today.

He spoke as part of President Donald Trump’s address declaring a national emergency.

McMillon said portions of Walmart parking lots will be available in select locations to offer drive-thru testing for COVID-19.

“When we got the call yesterday from the White House, we were eager to do our part to help serve the country. Given what we are facing, that’s certainly important to do. We should all be doing that,” McMillon said.

He did not say which Walmarts, but he did say the plan is to increase the locations over time.
