Tedesco: County to Open COVID-19 Drive-Thru Test Site for Bergen County First Responders and Health Care Professionals on Sunday

Hackensack, N.J. -- Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco has announced that on Sunday, March 29th, at 12:30 p.m., the County will open a mobile, drive-thru COVID-19 test site for symptomatic first responders and health care professionals who live or work in Bergen County only.  The drive-thru test site will be located at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center at 230 East Ridgewood Avenue in Paramus, N.J. 

Only symptomatic first responders and health care professionals who live or work in Bergen County will be tested at this drive-thru test site and must provide accredited identification.  

To be tested for COVID-19 at the drive-thru site, first responders and health care professionals must be screened by first completing a brief survey located at https://www.newbridgehealth.org and seeing a Telehealth doctor. Patients will then be given a confirmation code number that they will present at the drive-thru testing site.

“Bergen County first responders and health care professionals who are symptomatic should please take advantage of our mobile, drive-thru test site at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center,” said County Executive Tedesco. “These are the men and women on the front lines who are working to keep our 1 million residents safe from COVID-19.  The sooner we help our first responders and health care professionals recover, the more people they will be able to treat.”
