How To Get Tested For COVID-19 In New Jersey
Testing is available to everyone in New Jersey.
Find out if you have COVID-19 at any of the 400+ testing sites across New Jersey.
It's quick and easy. You don't need insurance and free testing is available.
It's especially important to get tested if:
- You have COVID-19 symptoms after being exposed, even if you are fully vaccinated or recently recovered from COVID-19 in the last 3 months.
- You have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and are not fully vaccinated or recently recovered.
- You were recently in a large gathering where social distancing was hard to maintain or a crowded indoor setting and are not fully vaccinated or recently recovered.
- You must travel and are not fully vaccinated, get a viral test 1-3 days before travel and 3-5 days after travel.
Note: Fully vaccinated people and people who have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months do not need to be tested after being exposed to someone with COVID-19. In addition, fully vaccinated individuals and those who recently recovered do not need to be tested before or after domestic travel to New Jersey.
