Atlantic County COVID-19 Testing Canceled for February 2nd
Due to the potential for inclement weather from today's nor'easter, COVID-19 testing at Atlantic County's two locations has been canceled for Tuesday.
Officials with Atlantic County say COVID-19 testing at both the drive-thru facility at 617 Dolphin Avenue in Northfield and walk-up services at the county’s Galloway library branch on Jimmie Leeds Rd. for Tuesday, February 2nd, will not take place.
If you have an appointment for Northfield, you are automatically rescheduled for the same time on Thursday, February 4th. If you had an appointment for a test in Galloway, you are being asked to reschedule for another date and time.
The nor'easter that has been impacting the Garden State with rain, snow, gusty winds, and coastal flooding, has forced many of the COVID-19 vaccination sites to close except for the one in Mays Landing. If you had an appointment to receive a vaccine at the Atlantic City Convention Center, you will be notified of your new date and time.
As of Monday morning, the State reported 796,000 total COVID-19 vaccine doses had been administered -- roughly 664,000 first doses and 126,000 second doses.
NJ.com reports on health officials reported another 3,114 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 34 more deaths on Monday as hospitalizations dropped to the lowest number since before Thanksgiving. 531 people are currently in intensive care and 355 on ventilators across the state.
