6/30/2020 - Cumberland County Suspends COVID Testing Site Due to Decreased Demand

Cumberland County, NJ (June 29, 2020) Cumberland County has suspended operation of its “drive thru” COVID-19 testing site at Rowan College of South Jersey Cumberland Campus – Vineland according to County officials. Freeholder Director Joseph Derella stated, “Due to the widespread availability of testing at multiple facilities throughout Cumberland County, the demand for testing at our drive through facility has been reduced.” Derella indicated that the County has contingency plans to establish “pop up” testing sites should the need arise. “We have the option of restarting our college site or to bring pop up testing services to underserved areas throughout the County if necessary”, stated Derella.

Beginning July 1, 2020, CompleteCare Health Network will continue to offer testing in Cumberland County. “Ensuring that everyone in the communities that we serve has access to testing is a top priority,” said Curtis Edwards, President and CEO of CompleteCare. “Our partnership with the County and local Health Departments made it possible for us to test many people when the need was the greatest and we look forward to partnering with them again in the future.”

In order to receive testing, individuals can go to CompleteCareNJ.org or call 856-451-4700 and request to be screened. All individuals will then receive a telemedicine appointment to be screened by a CompleteCare provider to ensure they meet the testing criteria. If testing is recommended, a representative will contact the individual to schedule a testing appointment and let the individual know the location address for the testing appointment. CompleteCare accepts Medicaid, Medicare as well as private insurance plans and those without insurance. Everyone who meets the criteria to be tested will be tested whether or not they have insurance. The test will be free of charge and no co-pay will be required for the screening.

Only CompleteCare Health Network patients and Cumberland County residents will be able to be tested. First responders who are residents of Cumberland County will be given priority testing.

The Cumberland County Department of Health, Vineland Health Department, and CompleteCare Health Network will work to inform all those that test positive of their results as soon as possible. Guidance for anyone testing positive continues to be the same by remaining at home under self-isolation and relieve symptoms with over-the-counter medications, as needed. If symptoms worsen, individuals should immediately contact their doctor or go to the closest hospital if necessary – being sure to call before going. If you have emergency warning signs such as trouble breathing, persistent chest pain, new confusion or inability to arouse, bluish lips or face, please get medical attention immediately – call 911 if you have a medical emergency.
