Only first responders and health care professionals who live or work in Bergen County will be tested at the site -- but only after they are screened first, Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco said.
To be screened, Tedesco said, symptomatic first responders and health care workers must first:
- complete a brief survey located at https://www.newbridgehealth.org;
- see a Telehealth doctor;
- obtain a confirmation code number from the doctor to present at the drive-thru testing site.
They also must provide accredited identification.
“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,” Tedesco said Saturday.
“These are the men and women on the front lines who are working to keep our 1 million residents safe from COVID-19," he added. "The sooner we help our first responders and health care professionals recover, the more people they will be able to treat.”
The site opens at 12:30 p.m. at New Bridge Medical Center at 230 East Ridgewood Ave.
