From the Morris County Freeholders:



Beginning Monday, June 8,  2020, the Morris County Covid-19 drive-through test center at County College of Morris in Randolph will be open to all Morris County and Sussex County residents who want a nasal swab test, without a prescription and whether or not they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

All first responders and health care workers, who work in Morris and Sussex counties, also will be offered priority testing without a prescription or symptoms, regardless of their county of residence.

The virus testing is free. Antibody tests, however, are not offered at this site.

The change in testing procedures is part of the Board of Freeholders’ effort to safely reopen Morris County as the number of COVID cases decline in Morris and Sussex counties, and across the state.

“To assist in getting Morris County’s economy reengaged, and knowing many employers are requiring returning workers to be tested prior to returning to their jobs, COVID testing at CCM now will be offered to all Morris County regardless of whether they have symptoms and without a prescription,” said Morris County Freeholder Director Deborah Smith.

Morris County, in partnership with Atlantic Health, is offering drive-thru COVID-19 testing at CCM. Residents seeking tests should use the college’s Center Grove Road entrance to access the testing site, which is located in parking lot Number 1.
