Due to demand, antibody testing will be limited to 100 per day and only be available for Bergen County first responders, healthcare workers, and Bergen County residents who previously tested positive for COVID-19 with documentation of prior test results. All mobile site patients will be limited to a choice of either the saliva or antibody test.
First responders are eligible to receive priority testing from 9-10am and the site will be open to the general public from 10am to 2:30pm.
Mobile testing is available on a first come, first serve basis and is free of charge to the patient, regardless of health insurance status.
For the COVID-19 saliva test, please do not eat, drink, smoke, or chew gum 30 minutes prior to arrival. Identification is necessary so please bring your driver’s license/ID card, social security card, passport, or birth certificate. Proof of Bergen County residency or that you work in Bergen County is required so please bring your driver’s license, utility bill, pay stub, or work ID. If you have an insurance card, also have that with you.
