BALTIMORE — COVID-19 testing at a third community-based site in Clifton Park began on Friday.

“Bringing this third site online increases access for residents to community-based testing,” said Mayor Jack Young. “I am thankful for the continued efforts of all of the City’s partners in this endeavor.”

The new testing site is located in Clifton Park at 2801 St. Lo Drive.

Residents without access to a vehicle will be able to access testing services by walking to the site. However, an appointment and doctor’s referral will still be required for testing.

Residents are also encouraged to call their doctor or 2-1-1 for coronavirus symptom screening and to be connected to a physician for an assessment.

“Baltimore City’s evolving response to the COVID-19 pandemic requires an increase in our testing capacity,” said Mayor Young. “We will continue to roll out new community testing sites across Baltimore City in the days and weeks to come.”
