The expansion of coronavirus testing will include three Walmart stores in Maryland, including one in Frederick.

Gov. Larry Hogan announced the expansion Friday.

“As Maryland continues to dramatically expand testing availability and broaden the criteria for COVID-19 testing statewide, we are excited to be forging new partnerships with private sector companies like Walmart,” said Hogan, in a news release.

The expansion comes after the addition of 17 CVS sites on Thursday and the emergency order by Hogan earlier this week authorizing the state’s nearly 1,200 pharmacies to order and administer the coronavirus test.

In addition to Frederick County, two Walmart stores on the Eastern Shore will provide the tests.
