ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland's health department is instructing health care providers to order a coronavirus test for anyone who requests it.
Gov. Larry Hogan announced the new order on Thursday as the state added steps to expand testing. It applies to anyone who asks for a test regardless of symptoms. While Maryland has locations where people can get a free test without a doctor's order and without symptoms, some testing sites continue to require a doctor's order.
Maryland health officials also are strongly encouraging anyone who works in close-contact settings and people who have returned to Maryland from out-of-state travel to get tested.
