To help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, it is important that all persons with concern about COVID-19 exposure be tested as soon as possible.
Accordingly, Burlington County’s COVID-19 mass testing center can now make appointments for all Burlington County residents, whether or not they are experiencing viral symptoms, according to information provided by Dr. Herb Conaway, Burlington County Health Department commissioner.
The department will continue its policy of testing nonresident first responders and hospital employees working in Burlington County who present their employee IDs.
County testing takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays and is located at the Emergency Services Training Center behind Burlington County Institute of Technology – Westampton Campus off Woodlane Road.
Appointments must be made for testing and can be done by calling 609-726-7097. No doctor’s prescription required and testing is free of charge. To access the testing site and to ensure accuracy make appointments using the name on your government-issued ID.
All of this information can be found on the new Burlington County Health app, available for Androids and iOS. Download the app from Google Play or the Apple App Store and share it with your friends.
It is advised to avoid using masks with valves. Valves allow your breath to escape and contact others. See the health app for more information on this topic.
