UPDATED TESTING AVAILBILTY FOR BERGEN COUNTY 

 

 

Effective Sunday, May 3, 2020  exhibiting symptoms is no longer a prerequisite for testing Bergen Community College.

However, the highest priority for testing will be given to health care workers and workers in congregate living settings, and symptomatic first responders, as well as to asymptomatic NJ residents who have been in close contact with someone else who has tested positive. If anyone who calls the hotline who wants to be tested please tell them to go to BCC.

 You should be fever free for 24 hours without medication before returning to work or school.
