Baltimore adds third coronavirus testing site in Clifton Park

Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young announced Friday the opening of the city’s third community-based coronavirus testing site at Clifton Park.

Testing began Friday at the Clifton Park site at 2801 St. Lo Drive, which is run by city and state health officials, the Maryland National Guard, and the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management. Residents are encouraged to call their doctor or 2-1-1 for coronavirus symptom screening and to be connected to a physician for assessment.

An appointment and doctor’s referral are required for testing at the community sites. The city has two additional testing sites at Pimlico Race Course and Druid Hill Park.

“Bringing this third site online increases access for residents to community-based testing,” Young said in a statement. “I am thankful for the continued efforts of all of the city’s partners in this endeavor.”
