The Freeholder Board has announced two upcoming events for the Union County Mobile Test Unit for the month of November. Free COVID-19 saliva tests will be administered at events in Springfield on November 12th and Cranford on November 17th.
The walk up events are open to all Union County residents and no appointment is necessary. Those wishing to be tested should bring a smart phone or tablet and refrain from food, drink or chewing gum 30 minutes before testing.
“The Freeholder Board continues to offer free COVID tests county-wide, as we work to keep our communities safe,” said Freeholder Chairman, Alexander Mirabella. “We encourage residents to get tested if they have any concerns about exposure to COVID-19, whether or not they have symptoms.”
