Sussex County Community College in Newton will become a drive-through coronavirus testing site for Sussex County. According to the Sussex County Department of Health, tents are currently being erected at the college and only symptomatic persons who have prescriptions for testing from their medical providers will be able to get tested.

The Sussex County Division of Health and the Sheriff's Office of Emergency Management are creating the drive-through center in partnership with Atlantic Health System and with the help of the Sussex County Sheriff's Office and Sussex County Community College. Morris County assisted by providing logistical and operational guidance.

According to the SCDOH, the opening of the testing facility is contingent on the receipt of necessary medical equipment and more details on the testing center will be made public in the coming days.
