Overview

Under the new Statewide testing strategies and with the greater availability of tests, clinicians are no longer limited to testing symptomatic high risk patients. We encourage that you additionally test patients who are asymptomatic and may have directly or indirectly come into contact with a person known or suspected of carrying the COVID-19 virus. This strategy will help to identify additional asymptomatic carriers in order to contain the spread of the virus (see details below).

According to the Maryland Department of Health (MDH), healthcare providers shall prioritize COVID-19 test orders using the most expeditious means available (e.g., a hospital lab, commercial lab, or the State Laboratory) to the following groups:

The following populations should now be prioritized for testing:

  • Any symptomatic individual
  • Asymptomatic individuals where COVID-19 exposure may be possible, including:
    • contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases
    • residents and staff of congregate living settings and long-term care facilities
    • healthcare workers and first responders
    • patients, especially high-risk unstable patients, whose care would be altered by a diagnosis of COVID-19
    • individuals employed in close contact settings
    • individuals previously in a large gathering
    • individuals directed to be tested by the Maryland Department of Health associated with a cluster, outbreak or contact investigation

In addition, retesting or serial testing of individuals should be conducted based on clinical or epidemiological indications or as directed by the Department or a local health department.
