Effective Monday, June 8, the free Union County Covid-19 Drive-Through Test Center at Kean University will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It will be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
“As the result of a historic community effort by Union County residents to slow the spread of COVID-19, the number of requests for tests has gone down in recent weeks,” Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella explained.
“We continue to urge Union County residents, as well as front line emergency and medical workers, to make an appointment at the Test Center if you are concerned about your exposure to COVID-19,” added Mirabella.
Residents must also continue to observe precautions against spreading the virus such as wearing a face mask, maintaining social distance, and washing hands frequently.
The Test Center is a free service available to Union County residents, with or without COVID-19 symptoms. Union County residents who wish to be tested can book an appointment online through the registration link on the County website, ucnj.org, or by phone at 908-214-7107.
The Test Center is also free to first responders and front-line health workers with or without symptoms, regardless of their place of residence. First responders and front-line health workers may also book an appointment online at ucnj.org, or call 908-373-5105.
All tests are provided by appointment owner and visitors to the Test Center must arrive by car. No walk-ins are accepted.
