BALTIMORE — On Friday, Baltimore City Mayor Jack Young announced the start of construction of a new COVID-19 drive-thru screening site at the Pimlico Race Course.

“The Pimlico Race Course is an accessible location that provides the space and infrastructure needed for a mobile screening site, once additional tests become available,” Mayor Young said.

The Maryland National Guard is assisting in the construction process for the site.

“I want to thank the owners of the property, the Stronach Group, for partnering with us in this effort,” Mayor Young said. “This facility will be a critical piece of the puzzle as we work with our partners to increase testing availability and access in the coming weeks.”
