Adequate Ability to Handle Limited Number of Neighboring County Residents
The COVID-19 drive-thru testing center at County College of Morris in Randolph will begin to accept a select number of Sussex County residents for daily, week-day appointments for the virus testing starting later this week.
While the site will continue to predominantly provide tests for Morris County residents, about 75 appointments will be set aside for people who reside in Sussex County.
The remainder of approximately 240 appointments each day will be reserved for Morris County residents who are showing potential signs of having the virus.
Only residents who have a prescription from a doctor or medical provider and have properly signed up for an appointment will be allowed at the testing site.
For information and to make an appointment residents should visit the Morris County Office of Health Management website.
IMPORTANT: To be tested, you must be in a vehicle, must have identification, must have an appointment and must have a prescription — preferably printed — from a medical provider.
The Morris County COVID-19 drive-thru testing site is located at CCM, Center Grove Road, Randolph, NJ 07869. Residents with appointments must use the Center Grove Road entrance (see map) to access the site.
“We have the availability at this time to allow some of the residents from our neighboring county to be tested for this virus, which knows no political or geographical boundary,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Director Deborah Smith.
“I appreciate the cooperation and support we are receiving from Morris County during this unprecedented time,” said Sussex County Freeholder Director Sylvia Petillo.
Atlantic Health System, which is Morris County’s main partner in the test site effort, operates Newton Medical Center, which is the largest hospital in Sussex County.
