Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young Announces New Community Testing Site at Clifton Park

Mayor Young, the Maryland Department of Health, the Maryland National Guard, and the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management partner together to bring the third Baltimore City community-based testing site online

BALTIMORE, MD.  — Today, Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young announced the launch of a third community-based testing site at Clifton Park. Mayor Young issued the following statement: 

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

The new testing site will be located in Clifton Park at 2801 St. Lo Drive. Residents without access to a vehicle will be able to access testing services by walking to the site, although an appointment and doctor’s referral will still be required for testing.

Testing at this site began today. Residents are encouraged to call their doctor or  2-1-1 for coronavirus symptom screening and to be connected to a physician for assessment.

Data provided by the testing sites showed that at the end of the day Thursday, the City in conjunction with its lead healthcare partner, LifeBridge, had conducted 1,040 COVID-19 tests at its two community-based testing sites, Pimlico and Druid Hill, with another 120 tests scheduled for today.

 “Baltimore City’s evolving response to the COVID-19 pandemic requires an increase in our testing capacity,” said Mayor Young. “We will continue to roll out new community testing sites across Baltimore City in the days and weeks to come.”
