Baltimore County announces 4th COVID-19 testing site in Dundalk

DUNDALK, MD—Beginning on Monday, May 4, the Baltimore County Department of Health will open a fourth COVID-19 testing site at the Dundalk Health Center (7700 Dunmanway Baltimore, Maryland 21222) to help meet the need for expanded testing.

The new clinic will offer 50 slots per day and will be the county’s second walk-up clinic, as well as the first County-operated testing site in Eastern Baltimore County.

“Additional testing capacity is critical to keeping county residents safe as we continue responding to this pandemic, and is a necessary condition for opening back up,” County Executive Johnny Olszewski said. “This new site gives us even more capacity to perform tests in communities across Baltimore County.”

“Alongside social distancing and contact tracing, test sites are a very important tool in our arsenal against this pandemic,” said County Health Officer Dr. Gregory Wm. Branch. “We want to ensure that all of our neighborhoods have access to available testing.”

As with all other County testing locations, patients must first get authorization from a healthcare provider to be tested. Once authorization is obtained, the person to be tested must schedule an appointment using the state-designated Chesapeake Regional Information System (CRISP) and will be able to select one of the following test locations:

Walk-up

Drive-through

Local residents should note that drive-up testing is also being offered by Patient First in Perry Hall/Nottingham.

People arriving at any of the four official Baltimore County test sites without an order from a healthcare provider and a pre-scheduled appointment will not be tested.

Tested individuals will receive post-test instructions at the clinic and most test results will be available within two days.

Persons coming for testing are asked to adhere to recommendations and safety guidelines, including wearing face coverings, observing social distancing and following post-test instructions received at the sites.
