TOWSON, Md. — No doctors order? No problem, now all you need is an appointment to get a COVID-19 test in Baltimore County.

Appointments can be made by calling the COVID-19 hotline at 410-887-3816.

Previously, tests were only available to patients with a doctor’s order and appointment.

The announcement comes three days after Governor Larry Hogan directed the Maryland Department of Health to make appointment-free COVID-19 testing available at community-based testing sites throughout the state.

On Thursday the Maryland State Fairgrounds tested 1000 people and ran out of kits within the first couple hours of opening, after accepting patients without an appointment or doctors order for the first time.
