Patient First is offering drive-up COVID 19 testing at seven locations in Maryland.

The latest location began offering tests on May 21 at its location on West Street in Annapolis.

Other sites include Owings Mills (Reisterstown Road), Odenton (Maryland and Annapolis Road), Perry Hall (Belair Road), Rockville, Waldorf (Crain Highway), and Aberdeen (Hospitality Way).

On Wednesday, Governor Hogan announced universal COVID-19 testing at all state-run correctional and juvenile detention facilities across the state. Maryland is also delivering more than 20,000 tests a week for universal testing at nursing homes. Maryland’s Public Health Laboratory is producing up to 10,000 tubes of viral transport media on a weekly basis to overcome supply chain challenges, and the state is distributing more than 33,000 additional swabs to local jurisdictions.

A day earlier, Hogan directed the Maryland Department of Health to make appointment-free COVID-19 testing available at community-based testing sites throughout the state.
