Walmart Inc. has surpassed its goal of opening 20 coronavirus testing sites around the country by the end of April, according to a map on its corporate website.
The frequently updated map can be viewed at https://corporate.walmart.com/covid19testing. The site also has more details about the testing process.
Walmart will open its third Arkansas testing site today, at Fort Smith Park, a Walmart spokesman said Monday. It will operate Mondays through Wednesdays each week.
The first Arkansas site, on the grounds of its Bentonville headquarters, opened in early April as a pilot site. A second is now open at 2700 S. Shackleford Road in Little Rock.
The retailer said in a recent blog post that it plans as many as 50 of the drive-thru sites nationwide.
Most Walmart testing sites are set up in Supercenter and Sam's Club parking lots. Anyone with symptoms of covid-19 can get tested, as well as health care workers and emergency responders whether or not they have any symptoms.
