Updates for Galloway and Atlantic City COVID-19 Test Sites

The COVID-19 PCR test site at 421 Chris Gaupp Drive in Galloway will be closing as of 5 PM on Sunday, February 6, according to the Atlantic County Division of Public Health. The site had been operating as a collaborative effort of Atlantic County and Stockton University with federal and state funding.

“The Galloway site was offered for a three-week period to help meet the high demand for COVID-19 testing at the time,” stated Kara Janson, Acting Public Health Director for Atlantic County. “We do have interest from another vendor that may take over testing at this location. Once that is confirmed we will share that information with the public.”

On February 2, the state reported a 43% decrease in COVID-19 cases from the prior week and an 80% decrease from the prior month. Of the New Jersey residents eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, 90% have received at least one dose.

“We’re pleased to see the daily numbers of new COVID-19 cases starting to come down,” stated County Executive Dennis Levinson. “We are cautiously optimistic we have passed the post-holiday surge.”

The free COVID-19 test site at The Carnegie Center in Atlantic City, operated by the county and Stockton, will remain open with adjusted hours. Beginning Sunday, February 6, the site will be open 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays for PCR saliva testing for state residents ages 4 and older. Pre-registration is not required but strongly suggested and can be accessed at covid.vlt.co.

“Testing is still necessary for many of our residents for work, travel and medical procedures, so we will continue to work with our state and local community partners to make it readily available,” said Levinson.

A list of test sites in Atlantic County is available on the county website at www.aclink.org. To locate sites throughout the state, visit covid19.nj.gov.
