Covid-19 Test at Home Program

The Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders is proud to announce the first public/private partnership in the nation to offer free at-home COVID-19 testing. These tests are available to all residents of Passaic County, free of charge.

The saliva collection test for COVID-19 has the same effectiveness as the nasal swab test. This test is performed under the supervision of a Vault healthcare provider through a video telehealth visit eliminating the risk of person-to-person exposure to the virus.
