Summer-Friendly Hours at COVID-19 Testing Sites
Options Throughout the State Create Flexibility for Marylanders
Baltimore, MD (UPDATED June 9, 2020) – Governor Larry Hogan
today announced summer-friendly hours at many of the state’s COVID-19 testing
sites. Beginning this week, state-operated testing sites at Six Flags America
theme park and several other locations will provide testing from 8am to 12pm on
their days of operation.
“As we move into Phase Two of our
Roadmap to Recovery, summer-friendly testing hours will provide greater
flexibility for Marylanders who are getting back to work,” said Governor Larry
Hogan. “With the help of partners across the state, Maryland has become a
national leader in testing. As we quickly approach the milestone of half a
million tests, I am proud that our community-based testing program has
continued to expand and can accommodate anyone who would like a test.”
The Six Flags America testing site
will be open on Wednesday, June 10 and Friday, June 12 from 8am to 12pm each
day. No appointment or doctor’s order are required to get a test at the Six
Flags America test site.
The following testing sites will
be open on an appointment-only basis this week. Many of these sites will also
offer summer hours, which patients can review when scheduling an appointment.
Belair VEIP (Harford)
Carroll County Agricultural Center (Carroll)
Clinton VEIP (Prince George’s)
Columbia VEIP (Howard)
Glen Burnie VEIP (Anne Arundel)
Hagerstown VEIP (Washington)
Owings Mills VEIP (Baltimore)

Tests are provided at no
out-of-pocket cost to patients, and Marylanders do not need to exhibit symptoms
or suspect exposure to COVID-19 in order to get tested. Patients who are tested
at state-operated sites will be contacted with their results, typically within
two to five days. At all state testing sites, patients will be required to
present official identification.
Additionally, dozens of private
partners, such as CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, and local health care providers, are
offering tests at their facilities.
Information on scheduling a test
and an interactive map and list of the major testing sites in Maryland is
available at https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/symptoms-testing.
There, patients can also zoom to find information on the public transit options
local to many testing sites, and test site operators can submit information to
have their sites included on the published list.
