Most CVS and Walgreens locations are open for business on Labor Day Monday 2020. However, don’t be surprised if their pharmacies have limited hours today, since they operate on hours that are different from the regular store hours. Like most retail stores, CVS and Walgreens are offering special discounts and sales for the holiday.
CVS Labor Day Store Hours 2020
CVS stores do not have set holiday hours, so they may vary from store to store. When it comes to Labor Day, there are no extended shopping hours, and most stores operate according to their regular business hours. But hours can vary from store to store.

CVS customers are encouraged to follow social distancing guidelines, and drive-thru and delivery options are also available if preferred. For more information about how CVS Health is responding to the pandemic, you can visit CVS Health COVID-19 Resource Center.
CVS is also offering COVID-19 testing at some of its drive-through pharmacy locations. These use self-swab tests for individuals who meet CDC guidelines. Patients must register in advance for the test at CVS.com. Patients stay in their cars and are directed to a drive-thru window and are given a test kit, where they’re observed to make sure they use the kit properly. You can learn more about COVID-19 testing at CVS and CVS Minute Clinics here. Lab result turnaround time is generally two to three days, and with most insurance programs, the out-of-pocket cost is $0.

Some Walgreens locations are offering drive-through shopping for safely picking up prescriptions, and select locations are offering COVID-19 testing. Eligible prescriptions are available for free delivery in one to two days. Some Walgreens also offer delivery through Postmates.
