Community Testing Sites

Frederick County Health Department is providing on-site "pop-up" community diagnostic testing in addition to the existing testing locations around the county. These community testing sites are designed to target vulnerable and minority communities who may be more at-risk for being infected by COVID-19 and who may experience barriers to testing, and provide support to community and faith-based organizations.

For the locations and times of our testing clinics, check out the calendar at the top of this page. Specimen collection is primarily nasopharyngeal swabs, but may be able to be oropharyngeal or anterior nasal swab depending on available supplies.

If you are interested in hosting a testing clinic for your community group, please email to with the following information:

  • What population would be coming to your testing clinic? 
  • How many people do you expect to attend?
  • Will your on-site clinic be open to the public? 
  • If so, is parking/public transportation nearby?
  • Is the space accessible for people with disabilities?
  • What day and hours are you requesting?

We will try to accommodate as many requests as we are able.
