Moco Free COVID-19 Testing Sites

Rockville, Maryland (Saturday, August 29, 2020) – Montgomery County health officials will provide free walk-in and drive-thru COVID-19 testing at multiple sites during the week of August 30th. Testing clinics are free, no doctor’s order is required, and no appointments are 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 testing clinics are from CIAN Diagnostic Laboratories in Frederick, under a contract with the Maryland Department of Health.  These tests are anterior nares 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).
