TESTING Info & Sites (mostly free)

CVS Scheduled Testing (PCR & Rapid) 

I recommend the Rapid because you are in and out in 7 min.

You generally have to schedule 2-4 days in advance, though some appts become available at any time due to cancellations.
Negative Rapid tests are almost 100% accurate. (A positive Rapid test has a fairly low accuracy.)
