ROSELLE, NJ -  A mobile COVID-19 testing site is coming to Roselle, Mayor Atkins announced in his latest ‘Mayor’s Connection’ address.

The exact dates for the testing center have not yet been announced but according to the Mayor it should be sometime in late September or early October. The tests done at this site will be the newer saliva tests instead of the more invasive nasal swabs.

“Thanks to our Freeholder, Andrea Staten, who has been leading the charge,” said the Mayor, acknowledging that the borough’s partnership with Union County helped to bring this to Roselle.
