    Note: When I got tested in the first week of October 2020, Walgreens was not testing minors, now they are.

    Walgreens is providing drive-through testing in some of its locations. The tests available are

    RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel : 

    This Test Is Being Accepted By Countries Like India For Travelers Who Want To Avoid Institutional Quarantine, Home Quarantine Is Mandatory.

    Rapid Point Of Care (POC) Test 

    This one is considered a shorter and faster version but may not be accepted in case you need to show its result in the country you are visiting.
