Additional Planned Site:
Morris County, in coordination with the State of New Jersey, has begun the process of creating the infrastructure of a drive-thru coronavirus testing site which will be located in a parking area at the County College of Morris in Randolph.
Residents may already see the presence of tents that are being erected at the site, which is expected to serve only persons who have prescriptions for testing from their medical providers when it opens.
The Morris County Office of Emergency Management and Office of Health Management are creating the drive-thru center in partnership with Atlantic Health System. Other partners in this venture are CCM, Morris County Sheriff’s Office, Morris County Park Police Department, and the Randolph Police Department.
The opening of the testing facility is contingent on the receipt of necessary medical equipment, which is to be provided by the state. More specific details on the operation of the testing center will be made public in the coming days.
Testing is free and will be covered by the federal government or personal insurance company. Please bring your insurance card if you have one.
To be tested for COVID-19, individuals must present proof of New Jersey residency. Technicians will be screening individuals for symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, shortness of breath, coughing) and those who do not exhibit symptoms will be turned away.
Physician notes are not required, but if an individual has a physician's note, they are encouraged to bring it with them.
