UNION COUNTY, NJ -- Beginning May 18, the Union County COVID-19 Drive-Through Test Center at Kean University will be available to all County residents who wish to be tested, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms.

The Test Center, which offers free testing, is also available to all first responders and frontline health workers who are asymptomatic and that work in Union County, regardless of their residence. The testing site will remain committed to testing all first responders and frontline health workers who have symptoms and a prescription from a doctor as long as they live or work in New Jersey.

"This expansion of the Test Center will mirror the state's goal to increase testing capacity within our communities, building data that will capture virus rates to be used to help get our economy restarted responsibly in our County," said Freeholder Chair Al Mirabella.
