Test Sites:

Testing by appointment  is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) site in White Oak (2121 Industrial Parkway). This site is a partnership with the Maryland Department of Health. 

Montgomery County Health and Human Services also provides testing by appointment on Wednesdays and Fridays at the Wheaton Community Recreation Center (11701 Georgia Avenue) and on Mondays in the parking garage behind the Regal Theaters in Germantown (20010 Century Boulevard).  

We offer testing to county residents who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 but do not have symptoms.  We also offer testing to residents who need testing to meet work requirements.

Testing is free but appointments are needed.  If you have insurance, we will ask for your information but there are no co-pays or deductibles.

If you would like to be tested, call the testing helpline at 240-777-1755 (8 a.m. - 8 p.m. /7 days per week).

The State of Maryland is also partnering with CVS pharmacies to provide drive-through testing at 17 locations in Maryland. For more information on the partnership and to find other testing sites throughout Maryland, visit the Maryland Department of Health's  website.
