COVID-19 Information and Updates
Starting May 6, the Howard County COVID-19 testing site at the Vehicle Emission Inspection Program (VEIP) station will expand to operate from two lanes to four lanes. This also increases our testing capacity to nearly 200 tests per day. It is clear from all the nation’s health experts that re-opening our economy will rely on robust testing and this expanded access to tests puts us on track.
For additional information on testing, please visit Howard County Health Department at hchealth.org
