Did you know that strep throat can spread through contact with droplets from the cough or sneeze of someone infected and is contagious for up to three days before diagnosis? The only way to diagnose strep throat is through a throat swab. Our pharmacies now offer rapid strep testing, making it more convenient for you to verify if you have strep throat. The test provides quick results and if positive, we dispense treatment and care instructions at the same time. There is no need to make an appointment and most pharmacies are open 7 days a week.
