English term or phrase: drive-thru testing
Definition from Yale Medicine:
Medical staff will take a “swab test” (usually done through the nose) to collect cells to test for COVID-19. These designated testing stations reduce the likelihood of further spreading the illness by allowing you to remain in your car, having the test taken through your open window. (The sample is then sent to a laboratory.) You will need an order from your primary care doctor before you can be tested for COVID-19, and tests are only available to people with symptoms. Testing for COVID-19 is free.

Example sentence(s):
  • For now, not anybody that wants a test can get a test. But we are hopeful that drive-thru testing sites and procedures will become more efficient and accessible in the upcoming weeks, if not days. As more people, not just those exhibiting symptoms, start getting tested, we will get closer to understanding COVID-19 and how it affects communities. GoodRx
  • Penn Medicine’s drive-thru testing sites are accessible to anyone who is experiencing coronavirus-like symptoms. You do not need to be a Penn Medicine patient to be tested. Penn Medicine
  • Cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, are rapidly increasing in the United States, and to help detect cases, several states and health care providers are launching drive-thru testing. Advisory Broad
