COVID-19 testing center at CCM no longer requires prescriptions

Tests Free for Morris-Sussex Residents, First Responders and Healthcare Workers — Need Appointments

RANDOLPH TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – Beginning Monday, June 8, the Morris County Covid-19 drive-through test center at County College of Morris in Randolph Township will be open to all Morris County and Sussex County residents who want a nasal swab test, without a prescription and whether or not they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

All first responders and health care workers, who work in Morris and Sussex counties, also will be offered priority testing without a prescription or symptoms, regardless of their county of residence.

To be tested, you still must have an appointment. Antibody tests are not offered at this site.

The change in testing procedures is part of the Board of Freeholders’ effort to safely reopen Morris County as the number of COVID cases decline in Morris and Sussex counties, and across the state.

“To assist in getting Morris County’s economy reengaged, and knowing many employers are requiring returning workers to be tested prior to returning to their jobs, COVID testing at CCM now will be offered to all Morris County regardless of whether they have symptoms and without a prescription,” Morris County Freeholder Director Deborah Smith said.

Morris County, in partnership with Atlantic Health, is offering drive-thru COVID-19 testing at CCM. Residents seeking tests should use the college’s Center Grove Road entrance to access the testing site, which is located in parking lot Number 1.

Testing is scheduled starting at 9:00 a.m. on weekdays only. There is no fee for testing and to sign up for an appointment click here.
