IMPORTANT COVID19 UPDATE

Morris County will be discontinuing COVID-19 testing at County College of Morris (CCM) on Friday, June 26, 2020. In addition, no testing will be offered on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 due to a scheduled event at the CCM. 

​The County commenced operation of the test site on March 30th and has tested over 7,000 individuals. The decision to discontinue operations is due to less than 1% of persons testing positive over the last couple of weeks and greater availability of RT-PCR testing at pharmacies and urgent care centers.
