As of Tuesday, 200,000 coronavirus tests have been conducted in Maryland and 3.5% of Marylanders have been tested for the virus, Gov. Larry Hogan said.
The state now has the capacity and supplies to Marylanders who may have been exposed to COVID-19, even if they are not showing symptoms.
At Hogan's direction, state health officials will make appointment-free testing available at community testing sites.
