Three Maryland Counties Run Out Of Rapid Tests; Here's Where To Get Tested

TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) -- Three Maryland counties on Tuesday announced they are clean out of rapid COVID-19 tests as people rush to get tested amid a surge in cases.

The surge, propelled by the highly transmissible Omicron variant, led to record positivity and hospitalizations in Maryland. As of Tuesday morning, the percentage of people testing positive is 17.58%, and hospitalizations topped 1,800.

Baltimore, Anne Arundel and Howard Counties said they are out of COVID-19 home tests, and none of the counties have hinted at when a restock is in sight.

Several pharmacy chains, including CVS Pharmacy and Walgreens, also provide testing in some locations; if you're lucky, the stores may have home tests in stock.
