Chandler-Gilbert Community College’s Pecos Campus is now a location for drive-thru COVID-19 testing, according to a news release.

Embry Women’s Health, a local testing provider, is operating testing stations in the northeast parking lot, Lot 9, of the Pecos Campus located at 2626 E Pecos Road. Community members arriving for appointments should enter at Fairview Street off Gilbert Road.

“Our commitment to serving our students and our community remains constant during these times of change,” said Brad Kendrex, CGCC executive vice president of administrative services, in a news release. “We are pleased to be able to serve as a COVID-19 testing site for our community and look forward to inviting our neighbors back to our campuses when it is safe to do so.”

Campus facilities remain closed, while services continue to be offered to students remotely. Community members visiting campus for testing are required to stay in their vehicles and do not have access to any CGCC facilities, according to the release.

The test site at CGCC is one of six sites operated by Embry Women’s Health. Testing at CGCC is available from 7 a.m.-11 p.m. seven days a week.


Those wishing to be tested should visit embrywomenshealth.com/testing-blitz/ to schedule their drive-thru test at one of the six testing sites. One appointment slot may accommodate multiple individuals per vehicle; however, each must register in advance on the website.

Embry Women's has confirmed there is no cost associated with COVID-19 testing for patients. However, patients with insurance will need to provide their member ID, group number and a physical copy of their insurance card.
