INFORMATION ON TESTING SITES

There are several types of testing sites:

• Community-based testing sites – These sites are open to all New Jerseyans, including asymptomatic individuals. Asymptomatic individuals are asked to contact a health care provider or public health official before seeking testing, as it is critical that testing supplies are available for front-line workers and vulnerable populations. Where resources are strained, testing will be prioritized for asymptomatic health care workers and first responders, personnel in congregate living settings, and New Jerseyans who have been in close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19.

• Local testing sites – These sites may be restricted to residents of a specific county, municipality, or to first responders. Some also require an appointment and/or prescription from a healthcare provider.

• Pharmacy testing sites – The State has authorized the more than 18,000 licensed pharmacists in New Jersey to administer FDA-approved or authorized COVID-19 tests to their customers without a prescription. Testing is available at participating pharmacies including CVS, Rite-Aid, and Walmart. Please check with your local pharmacist as testing is not available at all locations and many may require an appointment or online registration. For more information, CVS, Rite-Aid, and Walmart have set up websites where you can book an appointment and find testing locations.

• Private testing sites – To access testing at these sites, you must contact your doctor or healthcare provider.

• First responders and health care workers – Both career and volunteer first responders and health care workers can also access appointment-only, drive-thru testing sites in the Meadowlands, Deptford, and Somerset. These sites have been opened by the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association, in partnership with Accurate Diagnostic Labs: njpba.adlabscovidtest.com
