For those seeking Covid-19 testing, the Calvert County Health Department currently offers cost-free testing at the Fox Run Shopping Center @ 713 Solomons Island Road, Prince Frederick, MD.
Appointments for Covid testing are required. All tests are PCR swabs which are sent to a licensed medical laboratory. Registration for testing is available at CIAN Diagnostics Patient Portal.
For anyone who would like to be tested for COVID-19 due to recent onset of possible viral symptoms, travel, or possible exposure to someone with COVID, we encourage you to contact your primary care provider. This is especially important for those with underlying health conditions as your medical provider may be able to test and start treatment immediately. Earlier medical attention for high-risk individuals can be lifesaving. For those without a doctor or nurse practitioner, you may wish to establish with a new primary care provider.
Where else in Calvert can I get evaluated and tested if I can’t find a test at my doctor’s office or at the Fox Run site?
