Montclair is partnering with the state and Essex County to offer six COVID-19 testing days over the next two weeks, Montclair Mayor Sean M. Spiller announced. Verona residents can be tested at the Montclair sessions.
The six testing sessions will be held in Montclair from 2 to 7 p.m. on November 23, 24 and 30, and December 1, 7 and 8, at the Essex County Glenfield Park Wally Choice Community Center at 49 Maple Avenue.
Insurance is requested but not required for the Montclair testing. No appointment is required and walk-ins are welcome. Participants are asked not to eat or drink 30 minutes before testing.
“I once again thank Governor Phil Murphy’s staff for partnering with us to bring these much-needed pre- and post-holiday testing events to Montclair,” said Mayor Spiller. “We continue to encourage everyone to get tested and follow all health and safety protocols to help ensure the well-being of our community.”
As of November 22, Montclair has had 822 positive cases of COVID-19 and 52 deaths. Verona’s positive case count has risen to 270, with 15 deaths.
