Jersey City Launches Two Covid-19 Testing Sites for Jersey City Residents


Jersey City will open two Jersey City Covid-19 testing sites on Friday, March 27, one walk-up site and one drive-thru site to be located on either side of Jersey City to best accommodate residents.

The first Jersey City testing site is in the eastern side of the city is walk-up testing site with an expedited process out of the Public Safety Headquarters building located at 465 Marin Boulevard.

The second location is a drive-thru in the southwest section of the city outside of the former DPW complex, located at 575  NJ-440.  The drive-thru allows residents to drive up and show proof of address, before being swabbed and driving away.

Both sites will follow an appointment-only system with proof of address (a recent phone, electric, or gas bill) upon arrival.  Any resident who have been exposed to the virus and are exhibiting symptoms – dry cough, fever, or shortness of breath – is asked to call the Covid Call Center 201-547-5535 to make an appointment.

Both testing sites and the Call Center will be open 7 days a week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The city has set up an emergency coronavirus page with the latest updates here – https://www.jerseycitynj.gov/CityHall/health/coronavirus.
