COVID-19 Isolation Assistance: Lord Baltimore TRI Center

The Lord Baltimore Triage, Respite, and Isolation Center (LBTC)

Updated June 15, 2022

***LBTC Closure Update***

The Lord Baltimore Triage, Respite, and Isolation (TRI) Center is now closed. There will no longer be centralized isolation and quarantine facility in Baltimore City.

We greatly appreciate the partnership of all referring providers over the last two years. Since opening in May 2020, the Lord Baltimore TRI Center has provided isolation and quarantine for over 3,500 people. Working together to coordinate those referrals, provide plans of care, and ensure safe transport took great effort and empathy. Thank you for your continued service to the community in providing services for those most in need and partnering to ensure everyone’s safety.

The Lord Baltimore TRI Center is now closed and no longer accepting referrals for COVID isolation or quarantine.
