As the novel coronavirus continues to loom in our community, CVS Health has begun offering self-swab tests to individuals meeting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria which include:

  • First responders
  • Healthcare providers
  • Symptomatic - Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19
  • Individuals in high-risk groups (persons over 65 years of age and those with underlying medical conditions)
  • Asymptomatic - without symptoms

Testing will take place through the CVS pharmacy drive-thru window only with the turn around test results available in approximately three days and available on CVS’s Minute Clinic portal. Individuals must register in advance at to schedule an appointment.

CVS El Paso Testing Locations:

  • 8041 N. Mesa Street, Suite A
  • 1780 N Lee Trevino Drive

Testing hours of operation vary per CVS store and residents are asked to visit online to schedule an appointment.
