More than 18,000 licensed New Jersey pharmacists have been authorized by state officials to administer FDA-approved coronavirus tests to customers, Gov. Phil Murphy said Monday.
The tests can be given without a prescription, Murphy said.
Additionally, 50 CVS pharmacy locations across the state will be offering self-swab tests by the end of May. The governor did not say which locations would have self-swab tests.
"This is another important step forward as we continue to build testing capacity in our state," Murphy said.
A significant ramp up in COVID-19 testing and contact tracing are integral in the state's reopening.
