Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes today announced that the County, in partnership with Vault Health Services, will offer free COVID-19 testing on Friday, November 6, from 10am to 2pm at the CURE Insurance Arena, 81 Hamilton Avenue. The saliva test is available to County residents 14-years-old or older and anyone employed as a first responder or health care worker in Mercer County.
Those going to the arena for testing should use Parking Lot 2, off South Broad Street, to access Gate A. Testing will be conducted in the arena concourse. Bring identification showing Mercer County residency and a smartphone or tablet if you have one. No prescription is necessary.
Testing will be limited to 250 people on Friday but additional pop-up testing sites will be scheduled around the County in the near future.
If you want to avoid the lines, Mercer County also offers an at-home saliva test for COVID-19, which can be requested by visiting www.mercercares.org. If you need help with the online registration process, assistance will be available Friday at the arena. Test kits to collect the saliva specimen will be available on site.
