COVID-19 Testing Will Help Get Control of Pandemic Local Leaders Say

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich gave important updates regarding COVID-19 testing efforts during his weekly virtual media briefing on Wednesday.

Last Friday, the county signed a contract with CIAN Diagnostics to serve as the primary COVID-19 testing provider. It’s the same lab that the county has been working with through the state for the past few weeks. Although local testing operations have ramped up, county officials say there’s a continuous reduction in the volume of people getting tested.

“We believe the more testing we do, the safer we can make people, and the quicker we can get control on things,” said Elrich.

Montgomery County Health Officer Dr. Travis Gayles also joined Elrich during the briefing and provided updates on local COVID-19 cases data.
