The statement below is by Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez urging residents to get tested for COVID-19.
“With cases of COVID-19 continuing to spike in our region, it is critical that anyone who believes they are experiencing symptoms to get tested. This is especially important as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday. Our most effective tool in the fight against coronavirus is the ability to quickly identify and isolate those who could be spreading the virus to others.
Our testing infrastructure has come a long way since the spring. Testing is more available and more accessible than ever, with providers offering drive-thru, walk-up, and in-house options across the county. Major pharmacies are now offering testing by appointment including, CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid, as are most health care systems and hospitals.
If you are unsure of where testing is available, finding a site is extremely easy thanks to the state’s “Find Testing” search function available online athttps://covid19.nj.gov/pages/testing. The Freeholder Board is also operating a drive-thru testing site for county residents in partnership with Cooper University Health Care at the Cherry Hill Campus of Camden County College. For more information regarding the site and how to make an appointment, visit https://www.camdencounty.com/service/covid-19-updates-and-preparations/testing-site-locations/ or call 856-968-7100.”
