Where can I get tested for COVID-19?

June 26, 2020 (updated February 26, 2021)

Please do not send students and employees to the UMB COVID-19 Hotline solely for information or assistance with testing.

  • Please call your medical provider.
  • Students and employees should call UMaryland Immediate Care at 667-214-1899 to schedule asymptomatic COVID-19 testing or visit this link. The clinic also offers flu shots. Sessions are first-come, first-served. New dates continue to be added.
  • Students and employees in the Baltimore area can schedule a COVID-19 test at the Baltimore Convention Center Field Hospital. Make an appointment here. Walk-up testing is also available. See below for more information.
  • Students and employees living outside of Maryland should visit their state health department’s website for information on COVID-19 testing available in their state. A link to each state’s health department can be found here.
  • The Maryland Department of Health updates its list and map of COVID-19 test sites each Monday.

If you get tested at the Baltimore Convention Center, here is what you can expect:

  • Dates and Times: Appointments are encouraged and prioritized. You can schedule appointments online at https://signupandschedule.umm.edu/mychart/SignupAndSchedule/EmbeddedSchedule?id=RES%5e84002422&vt=22697. Walk-ins will be tested but may take a bit longer. At peak hours such as lunch, wait times may be up to 90 minutes, but most are often less than one hour. The best times to go are mid-morning or after 1 p.m. 
  • Directions to Testing Site: The site is located at the intersection of Pratt and Sharp streets, where the Baltimore Convention Center buildings are connected by the Sharp Street underpass. From campus, walk on Pratt Street toward the Inner Harbor away from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard until Sharp Street. Turn right on Sharp Street. The testing site is located on Sharp Street between the two Convention Center buildings. Follow the directions of testing center staff in yellow vests who will direct you to the registration line on the Conway Street side of the Convention Center buildings.
  • What to Expect of the Test: UMB Emergency Management Executive Director Jonathan Bratt walks through his experience of getting a COVID-19 test at the Convention Center.
  • How to Receive Results: You will set up a MyPortfolio account when you schedule your appointment or when you register at the testing site. This is how you will electronically receive your test results. You will receive an email that your test results are available in MyPortfolio. You can access them by logging in on a computer or via an iPhone or Android app. If you need assistance with MyPortfolio, you can go to https://www.umms.org/ummc/patient-portal, call 1-844-281-8667, or email myportfoliosupport@umm.edu for assistance.
