LEONARDTOWN, MD (May 27, 2020) – In order to expand COVID-19 testing access for St. Mary’s County residents the St. Mary’s County Health Department (SMCHD) will begin operating drive-thru testing sites in various locations throughout the community. Testing has been scheduled for the following date, time, and location - additional sites will be announced on later dates.

June 3, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (while supplies last)
Mechanicsville Volunteer Fire Department - Station 22
29848 Therese Cir, Mechanicsville, MD 20659


Pre-registration for this testing event is available by calling the COVID-19 Community Hotline at (301) 475-4911 by 5:00 p.m. on June 2, 2020 (open Monday - Friday between 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.). Pre-registration is not required, however, those who pre-register may have reduced wait times, depending on volume.

In order to be tested at these sites, individuals must:

Be a St. Mary’s County resident
Present a photo ID
Remain in their vehicle with the windows rolled up until it is time to receive their test - A clinician will come out to your vehicle
If you have insurance coverage, please bring your insurance card with you to the testing site. Insurance coverage is not required and testing is provided free of charge (no out-of-pocket cost, co-payment, co-insurance, etc.) to all residents.

Additionally, appointment-free drive-thru testing continues to be available Monday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. outside of the Outpatient Pavilion at MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital. An order for testing from a doctor, pharmacist or the COVID-19 Community Hotline is required for testing through the MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital drive-thru.

COVID-19 testing requires a swab to be inserted into the back of the person’s nostril for several seconds. Most individuals experience minor discomfort at most. All tested individuals will receive information with further instructions at the test site and should continue to self-isolate at home while waiting for results, which should be available within approximately two to five days.

Community members, healthcare providers, and local business owners are encouraged to visit the St. Mary’s County Health Department’s website for local COVID-19 updates, data and information at www.smchd.org/coronavirus.
