PISCATAWAY, NJ — Middlesex County health officials will open a new drive-thru COVID-19 testing site in Piscataway at 1 Ericsson Drive on Thurs., May 28 and Fri. May 29. Testing is free and by appointment only.
“With a saliva-based test developed at Rutgers University and a drive-thru testing site just up the road from Town Hall, Piscataway continues to lead the way against coronavirus,” Mayor Brian C. Wahler said. “On behalf of the Township Council and myself, I want to thank Ericsson property owner Jack Morris for working with the county and the township to make this possible.”
COVID-19 testing for symptomatic and asymptomatic residents will be available at all county testing sites.
“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Middlesex County has been committed to providing residents with access to free COVID-19 testing, both in a drive-thru and walk-up format,” said county officials on Thursday.
Testing procedures will use the "innovative saliva-based tests developed by RUCDR Infinite Biologics and Accurate Diagnostic Labs,” they said.
The drive-thru locations in Edison and South Brunswick are being closed so the Department of Motor Vehicles can resume operations at these facilities.
Residents who wish to be tested can schedule an appointment up to three days in advance by visiting middlesexcountynj.gov/covid19testing or calling 732-745-3100.
The registration form is available in both Spanish and Guajarati, and the call center is staffed with individuals who speak multiple languages to assist residents.
