VINELAND — Cumberland County has suspended operation of its drive-thru COVID-19 testing site at Rowan College of South Jersey's Cumberland Campus, county officials said Monday.

“Due to the widespread availability of testing at multiple facilities throughout Cumberland County, the demand for testing at our drive-thru facility has been reduced," Freeholder Director Joseph Derella said in a news release.

The county can establish pop-up testing sites should the need arise, Derella said.

Beginning Wednesday, CompleteCare Health Network will continue to offer testing in the county.

“Ensuring that everyone in the communities that we serve has access to testing is a top priority,” said Curtis Edwards, CompleteCare president and CEO. “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.”

To request to be tested, visit completecarenj.org or call 856-451-4700. 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 an appointment and let the individual know the address for the testing appointment.

CompleteCare accepts Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance plans and those without insurance. The test will be free, 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 county residents will be given priority.
