Coronavirus Testing - New Jersey

  • Stay home when you are sick. Call your doctor to discuss your symptoms and whether you should be evaluated in person and considered for testing. Patients who don't have a primary care doctor can call a federally qualified health center or emergency department.
  • People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to isolate themselves at home while they are sick. Separate yourself from others in your home as much as possible, staying in a specific room away from others and using a separate bathroom, if possible.
  • Providers determine whether a patient should be tested based on their clinical judgement and the CDC criteria, which evaluates a combination of symptoms and risk factors.
  • The New Jersey's Public Health and Environmental Laboratory is prioritizing testing for vulnerable populations at greatest risk for adverse outcomes, those in high-risk professions and testing associated with public health investigations. Results from the state lab are generally available within 24 to 48 hours.
  • Providers can also request testing from commercial labs, where results times may vary.
