Recently there has been a significant increase in the number of COVID-19 cases across the U.S., including in New Jersey and in North Bergen.
Testing is one of the main ways we can protect our community and limit the spread of the disease. With this in mind, North Bergen has added a convenient new outdoor testing site in Braddock Park, at the Bruin Stadium parking lot. The site is open for walk-up or drive-thru, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. No appointment is necessary. Tests offered are COVID-19 Nasal Swab and Serology Antibody Test.
Like the two other sites in the township, testing here is FREE for North Bergen residents. There is no out-of-pocket cost for township residents, not even an insurance co-pay.
All residents are urged to get tested, and to follow health guidelines for your own safety and the safety of the community. While everyone is tired of wearing masks, we need to remain vigilant to beat this disease. The Township of North Bergen continues to provide free masks to residents who need them. Call 201-392-2157 if you need masks, or you can email a request to NBCares@northbergen.org.
