“We encourage all Union County residents to use this free, convenient service. The test provides vital information that protects our community and saves lives,” said Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders Chairman Alexander Mirabella, who added, "Testing has been a cornerstone of our ability to prevent the virus from spreading. Even if you have no symptoms of illness, it is important to get tested if you feel that you may have been exposed to the virus by someone else, or are at risk of exposing others.”
