COVID-19 Testing

HCGH Community Collection Site

*** Appointment and Physician Order Required  ***

At Howard County General Hospital, we are testing patients at a community collection site located in the parking lot of the Little Patuxent Specialty Care Center at 11065 Little Patuxent Parkway.

Once your physician orders a test, our registration staff will call the patient and provide appointment details. Advance registration for appointments is required.

COVID-19 test results are generally available within 24-36 hours of the test. The physician who ordered your test will communicate the results. It may take more time for your provider to reach you with the results. Please contact your physician if you do not receive results within 48 hours. If the patient has a Johns Hopkins MyChart account, the test results will also be visible in MyChart.

MyChart is free and available to all Johns Hopkins Medicine patients. You can sign-up for MyChart here.
