On January 19, Governor Phil Murphy visited the new COVID testing center on 421 Chris Gaup Drive, which is a mile from campus. In collaboration with the Atlantic County government, Stockton has provided this testing site to the public free of charge, with no appointment necessary.
The testing center is open seven days a week for the next three weeks, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Test results are available within 24-48 hours.
COVID testing and screening for Stockton students and faculty will continue at Pomona House as per usual university guidelines.
Murphy, while optimistic about the drop in infections, told the crowd that it’s important to maintain testing sites such as these. The threat of other variants remains, so it never hurts to make safety accessible.
President Harvey Kesselman also attended the event.
“As a member of the community, we want to do all we can to help control the spread of COVID-19,” Kesselman said.
The testing center makes COVID-related services accessible not only to Stockton students but to the entire Galloway community itself.
