As expected, the number of coronavirus cases has increased with the opening of testing sites across New Jersey.
And that number is only going to increase, Gov. Phil Murphy said.
"As the testing regime expands, we’re going to see these numbers go up in a big way," he said. "We are getting a clearer and better sense of how far the coronavirus has already spread.”
Here's a list of coronavirus testing sites in New Jersey:
Officials are urging New Jersey residents to keep these testing sites open to those who need it saying that if you feel okay, stay home and rest.
You'll need state ID, insurance card (if available) and symptoms. If you do not have a fever of 99.6 or more, shortness of breath or a cough you will be turned away.
