Covid-19 prescription-free testing open at two New Jersey sites

by Community Contributor

Edited 4/23: The “further notice” came quicker than anyone expected. Per news reports, the Governor has rescinded the availability of COVID-19 for asymptomatic people: https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-care/new-jersey-reverses-decision-open-two-covid-19-testing-sites-n1190016

A message from NJ Office of Emergency Medical Services

Good morning,

Keep your window up. You will be directed when to lower the window just enough to slide paper though
Be prepared to hold you drivers license or ID up to the window
Do not exit your vehicle
Restrooms are not available

Should this schedule change, we will send another announcement out.
