COVID test site map

Your doctor would like you to undergo testing for COVID-19 and has placed an order. Within 24 hours you will receive a call from a coordinator who will schedule an appointment for you. We would like you to come to a Johns Hopkins facility community-collection site (NOT the Emergency Department) for this nonemergency testing. Testing requires an appointment. Please do not come to the hospital or testing facility without an appointment. For the safety of others, if possible, please come alone. Do NOT use public transportation or rideshare. Please bring a government-issued photo ID.

Howard County General Hospital Testing Site:
5755 Cedar Lane, Columbia, MD, 21044

If told to come for Pre-Procedure ASYMPTOMATIC Testing:
Park in Visitor Lot B or C and head toward the COVID testing door to the right of the main entrance (see yellow star on map) to conduct your self-guided COVID test.

If told to come for SYMPTOMATIC Testing:
Park in one of the main entrance island designated spots (see red/white star on map) and call 443-718-2457. Someone will bring a test out to you.

We will provide you with follow-up care instructions and expectations about results.
