Holiday COVID Testing Schedule

September 3rd, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Department of Health (MDH), local jurisdictions, and their partners are operating COVID-19 testing sites and mobile testing teams, as well as mobile and fixed vaccination clinics throughout the state.  

This weekly advisory provides information about testing site locations and hours operated by local health departments and MDH throughout Maryland. It also provides information about local health departments’ state vaccination opportunities. 

Reminder: All Marylanders 12 and older are now eligible for vaccination. Find a vaccination site and make an appointment near you here.

If you are not fully vaccinated, you are at risk of serious illness or even death from COVID-19, and should get a vaccination as soon as possible. For those who cannot get a vaccine, especially those 12 and under and those with compromised immune systems, you are vulnerable to new and contagious variants of COVID-19 such as the Delta variant. Testing remains essential to stopping the spread of COVID-19. 

MDH encourages the following individuals to get COVID-19 tests:

  • People who have symptoms of COVID-19. People who are fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine should be evaluated by their healthcare provider and tested for COVID-19 if indicated.
  • People planning to travel. If you are planning to travel internationally, you should be fully vaccinated. However, you may also need to present a negative COVID-19 test to enter certain locations, as well as to re-enter the United States. Be aware that COVID-19 is still prevalent in many parts of the world. Check the current COVID-19 situation in your destination.
  • People who:
    • Have had close contact with someone with confirmed COVID-19 (including a person who does not have symptoms within 10 days of their positive test result), even if fully vaccinated
    • Have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19, such as attending large social or mass gatherings
    • Are prioritized for expanded community screening for COVID-19
    • Have been asked or referred to get testing by a school, workplace, or healthcare provider

Some local health departments are no longer offering testing services to focus on vaccinations, but you can find a local testing site from more than 310 listed at
