How to Get a PCR Test for Traveling in Baltimore 

If you plan on traveling to Baltimore, it’s important to understand what options you may have for testing if you fall ill with COVID. You should exercise safety precautions such as frequent hand washing and social distancing to prevent any illness as with any travel. While we want to sight-see or conduct business per usual, it’s imperative to our communities that we minimize exposure.

Testing Locations

Baltimore has several test sites around the city. Currently, the Baltimore Convention Center offers outdoor tests. Many local hospitals and medical centers offer tests, such as John Hopkins Medicine and Mercy Health Services. Neighborhood mobile testing is available but does change weekly, so be sure to check the online schedule for information.

Getting Tested

Tests can be uncomfortable but remain an important way for you to remain healthy. Most testing is completed with a nasal swab that enters your nasal cavity. While uncomfortable, it is brief and does not last long. Most samples are then sent to a laboratory to be tested for the virus. RT-PCR and rapid PCR tests are both common methods of diagnosis and are reliable methods of detection.

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include persistent cough, fever, loss of taste or smell, and difficulty breathing. Other individuals experience headaches, muscle aches, and digestive upset. If you know you have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, be sure to quarantine yourself for ten days. Symptoms may take several days to appear, and the virus remains active in our bodies and easily transmissible.

Take precautions, avoid crowded spaces, wear your mask, and socially distance yourself. When in doubt, get your PCR test for traveling in Baltimore with Drip Hydration. Contact us to schedule your appointment and test today to keep yourself and others safe.
