County Announces COVID-19 Testing Schedule for Upcoming Week

For Immediate Release: Friday, October 16, 2020

Montgomery County health officials are urging all residents to get tested for COVID-19 and will provide free walk-in and drive-thru COVID-19 testing at multiple sites during the upcoming week.  

Testing clinics are free, no doctor’s order is needed, and no appointments are needed.  Residents with symptoms should call the Testing Helpline at 240-777-1755 for assistance with scheduling 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).
