How Do I Get a COVID-19 Test in Montgomery County?

About our testing clinics

We offer testing to anyone who lives, works, or regularly visits Montgomery County.

We test people of all ages. If you bring young children, we may ask you to help them get tested.

Testing is free. If you have insurance, we will ask for your information, but there are no co-pays or deductibles. See our Notice of Privacy Practices for the information we collect.

We do not require a government ID or a doctor's order.

Our clinics provide nasal swab tests. You take the sample yourself. The tests are molecular tests, also called PCR tests. These diagnostic tests detect genetic material of the COVID-19 virus using a lab technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR). We do not offer antibody testing at our clinics.
