County Announces COVID-19 Testing Schedule for Upcoming Week

For Immediate Release: Friday, Oct. 2, 2020

Montgomery County health officials will provide free walk-in and drive-thru COVID-19 testing at multiple sites during the upcoming week. Testing clinics are free, no doctor’s order is required, and no appointments are needed. Residents with symptoms should call the Testing Helpline at 240-777-1755 for assistance with testing.
