For Immediate Release: May 17, 2020

Union County COVID-19 Test Center Open to All Union County Residents Beginning Monday, May 18th, regardless of symptoms or not

Beginning on Monday, May 18th, the Union County Freeholders are announcing the Union County Covid-19 Drive-Through Test Center at Kean University will be available to all Union County residents who wish to be tested, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms.

The Test Center, which offers free testing, is also available to all first responders and frontline health workers who are asymptomatic and that work in Union County, regardless of their residence.  The testing site will remain committed to testing all first responders and frontline health workers who have symptoms and a prescription from a doctor as long as they live or work in New Jersey.

“This expansion of the Test Center will mirror the states goal to increase testing capacity within our communities, building data that will capture virus rates to be used to help get our economy restarted responsibly in our County,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella.

Asymptomatic Union County residents, first responders and frontline health workers who work in Union County who wish to be tested can make an appointment by logging onto the  Union County website at www.ucnj.org  and clicking on the COVID-19 Scheduling link.

The hotline will still be available to residents without internet, first responders and front-line health workers who are experiencing symptoms of the virus.  Please call  908-214-7107 or 908-373-5105 to be triaged and scheduled for a test.
