A new COVID-19 testing site is now set to open on Monday (March 30) at Ocean County College. The drive-thru location in Toms River, New Jersey will be for Ocean County residents only.

Registration must be completed on the Ocean County Health Department website. It is also suggested that residents should use the college’s Hooper Avenue entrance upon arrival.

The Asbury Park Press has reported that the “site is scheduled to open until 3 p.m. daily” and “will run weather permitting.” In addition, Ocean County Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy told the news outlet that those who do not register or have a doctor’s prescription will not receive a test.

If you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms, you are encouraged to go see your doctor first. Officials would like to keep this site only for those who can’t get tested elsewhere.
