The State of New Jersey has determined that testing be prioritized for individuals who are sick with symptoms (fever, cough and shortness of breath) and need hospitalization, those who have been in close contact with confirmed COVID-19 individuals, and individuals who traveled to or from highly affected areas such as China, Italy, Spain, France and other countries. If you do not have symptoms, testing is not recommended.
Instead, the State recommends completing a self-assessment
to learn what to do. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also states not all individuals needed to be tested
There are three types of testing sites in New Jersey:
- Community-based testing sites - These sites, such as the one in Holmdel, NJ listed below, are open to all New Jerseyans who are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness with some restrictions
- County or local testing sites - County sites, such as the one Congressman Smith helped open in Ocean County listed below, may be restricted to residents or first responders of a specific county. Most require an appointment and/or prescription from a physician or healthcare provider.
- Private testing sites - To access testing at these sites, one must contact your doctor, healthcare provider or pharmacy.
