EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- Three El Paso CVS pharmacies will start offering drive-thru coronavirus testing on Friday.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott made the announcement Thursday morning. In total 44 CVS pharmacies will be screening patients across the state.

The three locations are:

  • CVS Pharmacy, 12051 Tierra Este Road, El Paso, TX 79938
  • CVS Pharmacy, 1780 N Lee Trevino Drive, El Paso, TX 79935
  • CVS Pharmacy, 8041 N. Mesa Street Suite A, El Paso, TX 79922

Patients will be required to stay in their cars and directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window where they will be provided with a self-swab test kit. A CVS Pharmacy team member will observe the self swab process to ensure it is done properly.

Tests will be sent to an independent, third-party lab for processing, and the results will be available in about three days.

You will need to make an appointment before getting tested.
