Burlington County offering mobile COVID-19 testing thru mid-July

Burlington County announces a mobile COVID-19 testing unit is operation thru mid-July.

Dr. Herb Conaway, Director of the Burlington County Health Department, explains a test strip is inserted into a patient’s nose, reaching far back to gain mucous samples to be later sent to Virtua Health for results (Krystal Nurse/The Sun).

The Burlington County Health Department announced the county will now be providing mobile COVID-19 testing.

“We want to bring COVID-19 testing to our residents who may lack or have limited access to transportation. Individuals may collect their own samples or request assistance in doing so. As always, county testing remains free of charge,” said Health Department Director and COVID-19 Task Force Leader Dr. Herb Conaway. “With mobile testing, we can visit various locations around the county offering more opportunities for coronavirus screening.”

Mobile testing will take the place of the scheduled testing previously provided at the Westampton Complex. Mobile testing will be either drive thru or walk up clinics.

Pre-registration for a clinic is strongly recommended. No Doctor’s note or prescription is required. For an appointment, residents should call (609) 726-7097, Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
