Stay safe and aware during the holidays with COVID-19 testing

Nov 11, 2022

To protect our members from COVID-19, Kaiser Permanente continues to make testing and vaccination a priority throughout the region. Since 2020, our Advanced Urgent Care teams have conducted COVID-19 testing for members. Starting in November, that responsibility will shift to our Laboratory teams.

The medical centers below will now conduct COVID-19 testing in their lab departments. For a full list of COVID-19 testing facilities, please visit

  • Capitol Hill Medical Center, starting October 24
  • South Baltimore County Medical Center, starting November 7
  • Tysons Corner Medical Center, starting November 15
  • Gaithersburg Medical Center, starting November 28
  • Largo Medical Center, starting date TBD

Members will still get the same convenient care experience for COVID-19 testing. Tests will be performed by experienced staff members, and members will receive their test results within 24 hours.

Members may also choose to perform their own nose swab for the test. This gives them the convenience of collecting their own sample and dropping it off at their choice of 35 locations.

In addition to PCR tests, Kaiser Permanente also offers other convenient ways for our members to get tested for Covid-19. To decide which testing option is best for you and your family, read our test guide.

We require appointments for all COVID-19 testing and vaccination services. To schedule an appointment, complete an e-visit on or call 800-777-7904.

Protect yourself and your loved ones this season by getting tested for COVID-19, especially before any social gatherings. You deserve to enjoy the holidays together and in good health.
