The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will establish a surge testing site in New Jersey.

The site will be part of the CDC’s Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) for COVID-19 Surge Response effort. It will provide free testing resources to underserved communities.

When a location is selected and a timeline for opening is established it will be announced to the public by the New Jersey Department of Health.

“With the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, it is imperative that we remain vigilant and provide tools for our residents to stay safe,” said Governor Phil Murphy in a press release. “This testing site will be an invaluable means to continue mitigating the spread of the pandemic. I thank our federal partners for their continued support and commitment to keeping New Jerseyans healthy.”
