COVID-19 Testing

Montgomery County offers free COVID-19 testing, for all ages, at four sites across the county.
This testing is made possible by CARES Act funding that has been allocated directly to the County.

The Montgomery County COVID-19 testing sites are by appointment only, do not require a vehicle, and are self-administered tests (watch this video on what to expect for the self-swab test). These sites are outdoors and are subject to closure on short notice due to inclement weather. There are no public restrooms available for clients to use. Only same-day appointments are available.
