Atlantic County Will Have a Coronavirus Testing Site
“Hurley in the Morning” has learned and confirmed that Atlantic County government will be submitting their plan to the state of New Jersey to establish a Coronavirus Testing Site in Atlantic County.
This is the direct result of an effective collaboration between the Atlantic County administration, Atlantic County Freeholder Board Chairman Frank Formica, and New Jersey State Senator Chris Brown.
The approval process should take about two days to achieve.
This is a big next step as we enter this critical two to three week period of trying to mitigate community spread of the coronavirus.
The requirements will include, but, are not limited to:
Must be an Atlantic County resident.
Must present with known Coronavirus symptoms.
Must be referred to the testing site by a certified medical professional.
The testing site location will be in Hamilton Township.
This makes good sense and it’s centrally located for Atlantic County residents traveling in all directions.
In my exclusive interview to prepare this report, Senator Brown told me that, “I appreciate the county executive and freeholder board working together to bring as many services to our local families; to give them peace of mind during this sensitive and critical time,“ said Brown.
Formica is also “pleased with the Countywide effort,” throughout the process.
I plead guilty to being aggressive, in order to do everything possible to help the push for the implementation of this potential life-saving facility would become a reality.
Kudos to Senator Brown and Frank Formica. They simply wouldn’t take no for an answer.
Formica will be our guest tomorrow, Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 9:04 a.m. on WPG Talk Radio 95.5 FM, 1450 AM and on our WPG Talk Radio smartphone app.
