County is Exploring Options for Test Site

Post Date:03/20/2020 10:13 AM

Somerset County Public Health & Safety is exploring all options to develop a COVID-19 testing site, including securing test kits and the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for staff.

 "We are working with Governor Murphy, the New Jersey Health Department and the State Police regarding the potential for setting up a drive-through testing site,” said Freeholder Director Shanel Y. Robinson. “However, the initial pilots are being done in Bergen and Monmouth; future sites will be determined based on access to materials.

We will continue our efforts, keep you apprised of where we stand, and do everything we can to ensure all possible resources are brought to Somerset County for our residents," said Freeholder Director Robinson.
