How we can check maxwell equations are covariant?

    every people know that covariance principle is important in physics.

    before Lorentz transformations and special relativity, how we can check covariance principle about Maxwell 's equations?

    You can't check covariance "before Lorentz transformations and special relativity".
    That is why SR was proposed.
