COVID-19 TEST SITE LOCATION INFORMATION

BERGEN COUNTY COVID-19 Drive-Thru Test Site - Effective Tuesday, May 5, exhibiting symptoms is no longer a prerequisite to receive a COVID-19 test at the County of Bergen’s testing site at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center. However, the highest priority for testing will be given to health care workers and workers in congregate living settings, and symptomatic first responders, as well as to asymptomatic NJ residents who have been in close contact with someone else who has tested positive.

All testing requires a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant order and are only accepted from the Bergen New Bridge Medical Centers Telehealth Network.  The Bergen New Bridge location is the only Bergen County testing site that uses the Rutgers developed saliva test.  Screening and telehealth appointments are still required and can be arranged from the asymptomatic screening survey found at https://www.newbridgehealth.org/bergen-covid19-screening/. The Medical Center also offers COVID-19 antibody testing. All tests ordered exclusively through the Medical Center’s telehealth network via www.newbridgehealth.org.
