You must be a Warren County resident and complete a two-step scheduling process. Each patient must be screened and pre-approved by a SLUHN provider in order to schedule an appointment. If your primary care physician is associated with another healthcare network, such as Atlantic Health System or Hunterdon Healthcare System, you must call St. Luke’s Warren Hills Family Practice at 908-847-3100 to receive screening for COVID-19 testing. The testing site will only be accepting orders from SLUHN.
To schedule a test once you have been screened, visit Warren County’s new COVID-19 Testing webpage, www.co.warren.nj.us/Healthdept/wccovidtesting.html, where you will find details on testing requirements and procedures, and a link to the online scheduler. Only after you have been screened and pre-approved by a SLUHN provider, you can choose an appointment time for the Warren County Drive-Thru Testing Site. You must read the Consent Form available online, select an appointment time, and fill out required information in order to be scheduled for a test. There will be no charge for this testing.
Residents who need help or have questions about appointment scheduling ONLY, call the testing site call center at 908-878-3188. The call center will be open Monday, April 6 from 12-2 p.m. Normal operating hours of the call center will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, except for the Good Friday holiday on April 10. We strongly encourage residents to self-schedule online through the appointment portal.
For questions or concerns about the drive-thru testing site, outside of appointment scheduling, please call the Warren County Health Department at 908-475-7960.
“In an effort to reduce the burden on the already stressed healthcare system, Warren County government is opening up a testing site to increase opportunities for county residents,” said Freeholder James R. Kern III, liaison for health and public safety. Kern explained that priorities for testing “include symptomatic healthcare professionals and first responders, and symptomatic high risk individuals who are over the age of 60 or have underlying conditions, in addition to mildly symptomatic residents.”
