It is very normal for crowds to surge in South Jersey, but during a pandemic, that's a different story.

To adapt to the massive amount of tourists, Cape May County officials announced they will be re-opening their drive-thru coronavirus testing site at the Cape May County Fire Academy in the Cape May Court House on Thursday, July 30th at 8:00 AM.

If you are not showing any symptoms, the test is free and no co-pay will be required.

If you are exhibiting symptoms, you must be screened via telemedicine by a CompleteCare provider.

Results from the nasal test take about 3 to 4 days, but just be aware that it may take longer because of an increase in testing that is taking place nationwide.

Officials made the decision to reopen because 60% of coronavirus tests that were conducted were for patients who do not have a permanent residency in Cape May County.

“As the summer has gotten busier and there’s more people around, we’ve brought back the clinic to help offset some of the local testing demand,” said Denis Brown, the administrative aid aide to the freeholders. “They have been doing a great job getting tests done, but it’s just trying to get another testing option because they are getting inundated with tourists.”
