Maryland Department of Health COVID-19 Testing Activities by County for June 1 – June 6

June 1st, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Department of Health (MDH), local jurisdictions, and their partners operate COVID-19 testing sites and mobile testing teams throughout the state. This weekly advisory provides information about testing site locations and hours operated by local health departments and MDH. 

Reminder: All Marylanders 12 and older are now eligible for vaccination. Directly schedule an appointment at a mass vaccination site or find a pharmacy, hospital or local health department near you to make an appointment. 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 300 listed at

Even if you are vaccinated, it is believed that you can still spread COVID-19 if you are symptomatic. If you are not fully vaccinated, you are vulnerable to new and contagious variants, so testing continues to be essential to ending this pandemic.

MDH now has two MOBILE TESTING TEAMS which will visit each of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions through July 2021, supporting local efforts  to offer accessible, barrier-free testing to communities statewide. To find the schedule of Mobile Testing Sites throughout Maryland, visit the testing site locator at and check Search Mobile Testing Sites Only.
