CAMDEN, NJ — With winds forecast for today reaching as high as 50 mph, Camden County announced the Cooper's Poynt Park COVID-19 testing site will be temporarily closed Friday.

“For the safety of our healthcare personnel and residents seeking testing, it has been determined that testing should not be administered at the site this afternoon,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli. “Limited personnel will remain on site to direct residents to the an appropriate alternative operated by one of our partner institutions."

Anyone interested in getting tested can still visit a site operated via Cooper University Health Care or Virtua Health.

Camden City's testing site at 801 Delaware Ave. will reopen Monday at Noon and resume regular operations until 4 p.m. 

"The Freeholder Board remains committed to expanding testing access throughout our community so that we may better understand the spread of coronavirus in Camden County," Cappelli added.

Camden County announced that the testing site will remain open until further notice, adding that another is set to come online next week.

The walk-up/drive-thru site, the county said, serves Camden County residents, by appointment, who have symptoms and have received a referral for testing from a medical provider at Cooper, Virtua, CamCare, or other provider.
