LEONARDTOWN, MD (November 11, 2020) – Due to the significant rise in COVID-19 cases locally, the St. Mary’s County Health Department (SMCHD) is limiting services available by in-person appointment to the following:

Upon arrival for appointments, clients will be asked to stay in their vehicles and to call the office so that a staff member can meet them at the entrance. All incoming community members will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms, including temperature check, and will be required to wear a face-covering and practice social distancing while in the building. COVID-19 Testing will continue to be provided by SMCHD without an appointment, Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (expanded hours through November) in Leonardtown and Lexington Park. 

Visit the St. Mary’s County Health Department COVID-19 webpage for more information. SMCHD patients will receive notice of COVID-19 test results via phone call, positive or negative. COVID-19 test results may also be accessed online by individuals who have insurance at www.mdlab.com.
