Morris County, in coordination with Atlantic Health System, will continue COVID-19 testing all week through Friday, April 8, at the drive-thru center for Morris County residents only located at the County College of Morris (CCM) in Randolph.

The center will be open on Thursday and Friday, during this period of religious holidays, due to the nature of the current health crisis.

Residents must arrive in a vehicle (no walkups, motorcyles, bicycles); must have identification, an appointment and a prescription from a medical provider. It is preferred, for the benefit of the medical volunteers, that you have printed copy of a prescription. If you have no alternative, a prescription can be displayed on your phone.
