Essex County continues its testing station at Weequahic Park. Those seeking a coronavirus test must make a reservation. Maplewood will have a COVID-19 and antibody testing site all this week.

  • Social distancing, hand hygiene, and other steps to prevent infection must be followed at all times in all municipalities regardless of the number of cases.
  • The number of infected individuals in any municipality is likely to be much greater than indicated as this data ONLY includes persons who have been tested and whose lab results have been reported in the State’s data system. 
  • This data will not match any other report since cases are continually entering the system and local health departments may reassign place of residence as appropriate during their investigations.
