For Immediate Release
Sussex County COVID-19 Patient Testing Center Opens Monday at SCCC
MUST HAVE APPOINTMENTS – MUST HAVE PRESCRIPTIONS
Sussex County will open a COVID-19 drive-through testing center for Sussex County residents only, located at Sussex County Community College (SCCC) in Newton starting Monday, May 11. Registration will begin on Thursday, May 7.
“I am very pleased that Sussex County is activating a second testing site at the Sussex County Community College that will increase testing capacity for our residents,” said Freeholder Director Sylvia Petillo. “It was a Herculean task that took tremendous perseverance and commitment in light of limited resources. Thanks to Senator Steve Oroho, County Administrator Greg Poff, the Division of Health, Sheriff Mike Strada, and the Office of Emergency Management.”
The Sussex County COVID-19 drive-through testing site is located at One College Hill Road, Newton, NJ 07860. Residents will need to use the Plotts Road entrance in order to access the site. Testing will be available Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays beginning at 9 am, weather permitting.
“The health and safety of our residents has always been our priority, and we are thankful for the relentless efforts of our County Administration, County Health Department, Office of Emergency Management, and Sherriff’s Office in producing a testing center in Sussex County for our residents,” said Freeholder Herb Yardley. “This has been a difficult process, but through the hard work of many people we are pleased to see the testing site opened.”
Residents must show up in a vehicle and must have an appointment in order to access the testing site – you cannot walk through the testing center. Residents will need to display identification and will need to have a printed copy of a COVID-19 medical prescription from a medical provider.
Important: Only residents who have a prescription from a medical doctor or medical provider AND who have pre-scheduled an appointment for testing through the county’s COVID-19 appointment portal will be allowed to enter the testing site.

The Sussex County Division of Health and Office of Emergency Management are creating the drive-through center in partnership with the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office, Atlantic Health System, and Sussex County Community College.
