No Doctor’s Orders Needed for Columbia Drive-Through Testing 

Starting today, the Columbia VEIP Testing Site will no longer require a doctor’s order to schedule an appointment. Residents may visit to schedule an appointment directly. Residents who have been to or around someone who has recently been in a large gathering, who may have come into contact with COVID-19, or those who may or may not be showing symptoms are all encouraged to be tested for COVID-19.

The Columbia VEIP station is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. For a full list of testing sites in Howard County please click here.



This is more good news for testing of residents in Howard County. Hopefully this will help increase the testing numbers to the goals noted in HoCo Rise.
