County Announces COVID-19 Testing Schedule for Upcoming Week; Clinic Cancelled Oct. 12 Due to Forecast Winds and Rain

For Immediate Release: Friday, October 9, 2020

Montgomery County health officials will provide free walk-in and drive-thru COVID-19 testing at multiple sites during the upcoming week. The drive-thru clinic scheduled for Monday, Oct. 12 at the CDC Mobile Trailer, located on Randolph Road in Silver Spring is cancelled due to forecasted winds and rain. Other clinics will take place as scheduled. Individuals with appointments for the cancelled clinic will be notified by email.

Testing clinics are free, no doctor’s order nor appointment is needed. Residents with symptoms should call the Testing Helpline at 240-777-1755 for assistance with testing. The County’s home-based testing and human services screening is available for eligible residents. Find more information on the home-based testing and eligibility on the testing website.

The self-administered nasal swab tests provided at the clinics are from CIAN Diagnostic Laboratories in Frederick. These tests are nasal swab molecular tests. Also called a PCR test, this diagnostic test detects genetic material of the COVID-19 virus using a lab technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
