Anyone who lives or works in the Borough who does not have symptoms can now get a free COVID-19 test.

One in three people who have COVID-19 do not experience symptoms, so identifying people who have COVID-19 without any symptoms helps to stop the spread of the virus because they know to stay at home until they are no longer infectious.
