Coronavirus Testing - Maryland

CDC Case

Report Form

  • If you become sick with fever, cough or have difficulty breathing, contact your health care provider, especially if you are over 60 years of age or have pre-existing medical conditions. If you do not have a health care provider, contact your local health department.
  • If you need to seek care, call your health care provider, local health department or emergency room before you go; tell them about your symptoms, any recent travel and close contacts (such as people in your household); and wear a mask, if one is available.
  • Testing is appropriate for those who are at highest risk for developing severe COVID-19 disease. People who are mildly ill should not go to emergency rooms but stay at home and call their health care provider for guidance.
  • Your provider will decide if you should be tested based on several factors, including their clinical judgement, the availability of testing supplies and lab resources.
  • When they deem appropriate, providers order tests and collect samples, which they then send to a laboratory for testing.
  • There are multiple public and commercial labs conducting testing in the state. Result time varies depending on the lab.
