As Bloomfield officials continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the township, the Bloomfield Health Department is setting up additional free testing for residents. After all of this Thursday’s testing slots filled up, the township decided to schedule another testing day for Thursday, September 3 from 3:30-6:30pm in the municipal parking lot, to ensure that all residents that wish to be tested can be.

“We have worked diligently from the beginning of this crisis to keep our families healthy and safe while slowing down the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” said Mayor Venezia. “The reception for our previous testing days has been overwhelming therefore, we will continue to offer free testing to residents as long as there is demand for us to do so.”

Residents interested in getting tested should call 973-680-4057 to make an appointment. The township is especially encouraging teachers, janitors, aides; etc. and those working directly with the public to be tested. Testing will be conducted on a first come first serve basis.
