The FEMA supported COVID-19 drive-through testing site at the PNC Arts Center, Garden State Parkway mile 116 in Holmdel has been closed today, Monday April 13, due to forecast high winds, according to NJ’s COVID-19 information hub.

The site is scheduled to open again on Weds, April 15 at 8 am.

Community-Based Testing Sites are for individuals who are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness. In order to be eligible for testing, individuals must be current New Jersey residents and experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness. Priority will be given to symptomatic individuals experiencing cough, fever (99.6F or above) and shortness of breath.

On Saturday, April 18, the site is scheduled to be open for health care workers and first responders only.

Last week, FEMA agreed to keep the testing sites in New Jersey open beyond April 10 –until May30– at the urging on Congressman Chris Smith.
