BALTIMORE — Baltimore City is ramping up testing.

Mayor Jack Young and Health Commissioner Letitia Dzirasa announced a new partnership between the city's health department and lab vendor Hole-Logic.

“With this partnership the Baltimore City Health Department will soon be able to analyze COVID-19 test kits in our own labs."

The city has also secured 18,000 test kits.

They will be deployed to community sites across the city to expand mobile testing capacity to more neighborhoods.
