Atlantic County & Stockton To Open Atlantic City COVID-19 Testing



We mentioned last week that this was likely to occur.

It’s now official. The County of Atlantic and Stockton University are once again partnering together … opening an Atlantic City COVID-19 test site.

The COVID-19 testing will take place at the beautiful building pictured above.

This pristine and ornate building was originally donated to the City of Atlantic City as a library by American businessman and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.

It is now owned by Stockton University.

The County of Atlantic and Stockton University COVID-19 collaboration has been a very successful partnership.

They will be providing additional PCR and rapid testing in Atlantic City at Stockton’s Carnegie Center, located at Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard and Pacific Avenue.

The Carnegie Center will be available for testing beginning Tuesday, January 25 with a choice of a PCR saliva test or a nasal swab rapid test.

Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson said, “Vault Health is contracted to provide as many as 300 tests each day with lab results within 24-48 hours following testing. The site is funded by the NJ Department of Health with support from Atlantic County, Stockton University and the City of Atlantic City.”

The COVID-19 test site will be open on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Any New Jersey resident from age 4 to infinity is eligible.

Levinson confirmed that appointments are not required, but pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
