How Do I Get a Covid-19 Test in Montgomery County?

We offer testing to Montgomery County residents who

  • think they may have been exposed to COVID-19, or
  • need testing to meet work requirements.

Testing is free but appointments are needed. We do not require a government ID or a doctor's order. If you have insurance, we will ask for your information, but there are no co-pays or deductibles.

The test sites use oral swab tests so the tests are easier and quicker.
