Atlantic County will continue to provide COVID-19 testing at its drive-thru facility in Northfield at Rt. 9 and Dolphin Avenue, behind the county public works yard, each Tuesday in August, 9-11:30 a.m. However, due to the forecast of inclement weather related to Tropical Storm Isaias, testing scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 4 will be postponed. All scheduled appointments have been automatically rescheduled at the same time on Thursday, Aug. 6.
The test site is available for both symptomatic and asymptomatic county residents with or without a doctor’s prescription. Residents must make an appointment for testing and provide proof of county residency and appointment confirmation.
Appointments can be made online at www.aclink.org. Those who are unable to keep their appointments are asked to cancel no less than 24 hours in advance so others may have an opportunity to fill those spots.
