TRENTON, NJ -- -- Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes announced on Monday that the County will be offering free COVID-19 testing. Working in partnership with Vault Health Services, a saliva test is available for residents 14 years or older and anyone employed as a first responder or health care worker in Mercer County.
The free COVID-19 testing will take place on Friday, November 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the CURE Insurance Arena, 81 Hamilton Ave. Participants should use Parking Lot 2 off South Broad Street to access Gate A. Testing will be conducted in the arena concourse. Bring identification showing Mercer County residency and a smartphone or tablet if you have one. No prescription is necessary.
Testing will be limited to 250 people on Friday but additional pop-up testing sites will be scheduled around the County in the near future.
To avoid the lines, Mercer County also offers an at-home saliva test for COVID-19, which can be requested by visiting www.mercercares.org. Assistance with online registration will be available Friday at the arena. Test kits to collect the saliva specimen will be available on site.
