Three additional COVID-19 testing locations to open the week of January 10
MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ – In light of the overwhelming spread of COVID-19 and the Omicron variant in Middlesex County and the nation, County officials announced they will be utilizing their mobile testing ability to expand testing capacity to deal with increased testing demand. Starting the week of January 10, 2022, the County will add three new testing sites at the following locations: Monroe Township Recreation Center, East Brunswick Community Arts Center, and Epic Church in Sayreville. Additional mobile sites will be added in the coming weeks.
“With coronavirus cases on the rise and people returning home from holiday gatherings, the demand for COVID-19 testing is increasing. To combat this ongoing global pandemic and meet the needs of our community, the County will continue to collaborate with many community partners to expand COVID-19 testing services and resources to all County residents,” said Board of County Commissioners Director Ronald G. Rios. “Additionally, we continue to encourage everyone in the Middlesex County community to get fully vaccinated at the earliest opportunity. Testing is, and will continue to be an imperative for us, but getting fully vaccinated is the best way to protect our community against COVID-19.”
“As COVID-19 cases increase, testing is a key tool for residents looking to protect themselves and their loved ones from COVID-19 — especially the contagious Omicron variant,” said Deputy Director of the Middlesex County Board of County Commissioners, Shanti Narra. “By expanding the testing options available across Middlesex County, we can make sure residents receive testing when they need it. Our speedy response is thanks to our community partners and County workforce, and our commitment to lead together during these unprecedented times.”
COVID-19 tests performed at the Middlesex County Health Services sites are free for Middlesex County residents, but require an appointment. Residents wishing to make an appointment should visit Middlesexcountynj.gov/COVID19testing to register and receive a time to report to the testing site. Appointments will be made available online 48 hours prior to the test date. If a resident wishing to be tested does not have access to the internet or has connectivity problems, they are instructed to call 732-745-3100 to make an appointment.
In addition to County testing options, the NJ Department of Health and Vault Medical Services have partnered to offer a free at-home COVID-19 test kit mail in option. To order a free test kit, visit learn.vaulthealth.com/nj
