OCEAN COUNTY residents who are not showing symptoms of COVID 19 can now be tested at the coronavirus drive thru test site at Ocean County College, Toms River.

Testing will continue to be offered from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, by appointment, but starting July 6 you can be asymptomatic and have a test done at the OCC site.

“We are now providing tests to asymptomatic residents in order to increase testing opportunities in the community,” said Ocean County Public Health Coordinator Daniel Regenye. “Up until now the drive thru site at OCC and some other independent testing sites in the County required a person to be showing symptoms and to have a script from a healthcare practitioner.

“We will no longer be requiring this at the college drive thru, however appointments are still required,” Regenye said.

To date, 5,406 coronavirus tests have been performed at the college testing site.
