So what do you have to do? As simple as it is, medical staff will come to take your temperature and also a small sample by swabbing the inside of the nose. The whole process is simple and you don’t need to get out of your car. It is basically the same as a drive-through restaurant, except now we’re testing for this respiratory virus.
