Bergenfield COVID-19 Testing Site Hours to Change Beginning Monday, February 1

The Bergenfield COVID-19 testing center located at 1 S. Washington Ave. will have new hours beginning on Monday, February 1. The change in schedule was made in order to accommodate more residents, specifically residents that work a daytime shift. 

Beginning Monday, testing will be available at the following days and times: 

  • Mondays 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Wednesdays 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

“Throughout this pandemic, our township has had to make adjustments in order to best serve our residents and keep the community safe,” said Mayor Arvin Amatorio. “We have listened to the concerns of residents and are deciding to make this change so that more people can be tested and we can keep our numbers down.”

Bergenfield residents who wish to be tested can schedule an appointment online here.
