(Gloucester Township, NJ) – The Covid-19 testing site at 2600 Mt. Ephraim Avenue in Camden City will be closed tomorrow due to the winter storm that will be impacting the area starting in the early hours of Friday morning. The site will resume testing on Monday morning at 8 a.m. for anyone looking for a test from the area.
The Camden County Health Hub will continue to operate tomorrow in the afternoon hours for both COVID-19 testing and administering vaccines. The hub, located at Camden County College’s Blackwood campus, will also be administering booster shots to children ages from 12 to 17, per the recent approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The recommended time period for adolescents to get this booster is five months after their second shot.
“Tomorrow’s storm is going to bring some disruptions to the roadways with up to 5 inches of snow coming down during the morning rush hour. Nevertheless, we are going to provide COVID services to continue to beat back this virus in any way we can starting in the afternoon,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “The Health Hub will open in the afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. for testing and vaccines, and testing will continue at Cooper’s main campus in Camden City.”
Tomorrow’s operational schedule is below:
- The Camden County Health Hub is operating from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow by appointment only.
- The Camden County Complex located at 2600 Mt. Ephraim Avenue will be closed.
- Cooper University Hospital, which is located the intersection of Broadway and Stevens Street in Camden, will operate from 9:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow.

Tomorrow, the Department of Health will continue to administer vaccines from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Camden County Health Hub. The clinic will be administering boosters for ages 12 to 17.
“While testing remains important, we need to get everyone vaccinated and boosted. We need to get every resident in our community the best protection that science can provide and that starts with the vaccine and ends with the booster dose to ensure your body continues to make antibodies to fight the virus,” Cappelli continued. “The snow will have subsided by the afternoon and streets should be clear to come out and get vaccinated.”
