“AFC Urgent Care requires patients to first schedule a tele-care visit for a COVID-19 test screening. To book a tele-care visit, please go to https://www.solvhealth.com/book-online/pYllBA or call (201) 231-8880 during the hours of 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.,” Kearny Mayor Al Santos wrote on Facebook.

He added that residents who go directly to the location without a tele-screening and appointment will not be seen. The address is 276 Passaic Ave., across from the K-Mart parking lot.

Furthermore, the Towns of Kearny, Harrison, or East Newark will cover the testing costs of people without insurances, provided they have proof of residency in one of those three municipalities.

The North Hudson Community Action Corporation was also credited for making the testing site possible.

There are also Hudson County testing sites in Secaucus, Bayonne, Union City, Hoboken, and two in Jersey City.

Yesterday, the New Jersey Department Health indicated that there are 7,789 COVID-19 cases in Hudson County, the second most in the state by county, along with 236 deaths.

As of 11:30 a.m. this morning, Kearny has disclosed 421 COVID-19 cases and 22 deaths, Harrison has revealed 150 cases and five deaths, and East Newark has reported 22 cases and three deaths.
