CAMDEN, NJ — Testing has expanded throughout New Jersey for residents not displaying coronavirus symptoms — what is called a necessary step toward reopening local economies.

A step that the Rite Aid in Barrington Borough has made possible for Camden County residents for the first time effective immediately.

“Expanding COVID-19 testing is critical to our response to this pandemic. The ability to start testing asymptomatic adults is an absolute gamechanger for our strategy and understanding of how to combat this virus,” said Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli. “I want to again thank Rite Aid for bringing more testing to Camden County and for continuing to work with our residents to keep them safe and healthy.”

The drive-up testing site still requires residents to be at least 18 years old and have a government-issued ID.

The testing site, located at 501 Clements Bridge Road, is free and will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

"All Rite Aid drive-up COVID-19 testing locations utilize self-swab nasal tests overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists," officials said Friday. "Testing takes place in the store’s parking lot. As part of the testing process, individuals must remain in their vehicles from the time they arrive and until they depart."
