PLEASE READ BELOW VERY CAREFULLY (we will update this page regularly as services change):
If you want COVID-19 testing and do NOT require medical advice or guidance – you may self-refer for testing at any of the Maryland testng sites which can be found on this page: https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/symptoms-testing. The results of these tests are managed by the Department of Health in MD and you will receive a call from them when results are back. Turn around is usually 3 days to <1 week.
For ACTIVE infection concerns or need for medical guidance for your particular situation, please call the office to be triaged and for a virtual telehealth appointment with a provider to help determine what you may need, including testing. Some sick individuals may need additional medications and symptom support. If you qualify, we do have drive thru testing for certain patients at designated times BY APPOINTMENT ONLY in Eldersburg. IMPORTANT – DO NOT walk into the office if you are sick and without an appointment.
If you are scheduled for a COVID-19 nasal swab at our office (only after being scheduled for an appointment and ordered by a provider), please review this protocol for the time of your sample collection. IMPORTANT – DO NOT walk into the office on your test day. Please review this document before your arrival via car: Eldersburg Covid Testing Instructions. You will be called with your results 2-4 days from the testing date.

We do NOT recommend rapid finger tests that some urgent care facilities offer.
