Congressman Andy Kim Wants More Coronavirus Testing Access to Ocean and Burlington County Residents

TOMS RIVER-New Jersey Congressman Andy Kim wants to expand his district’s ability to test more patients and open a new testing facility to serve the southern part of the state in the near future.

Here’s what he had to say:

Today, we saw another 3,361 positive cases in New Jersey, bringing us to more than 44,000 of our neighbors with this horrible virus. These numbers are reflective of the testing that’s being done, but if you’re living in South Jersey, you know we need more tests. That’s why today, I pressed the regional FEMA administrator on the need for more federally-backed testing to help Burlington and Ocean Counties.

Also, a reminder that I’ve got two town halls this week; one tomorrow at 3pm where we’ll focus on unemployment and our effort to help those hardest hit financially, and one on Friday at 11am focused on helping our small businesses weather this storm.
