Coronavirus: What you need to know

Where and how do I get tested for COVID-19 in New Jersey? Who should get testing?

If you do not have symptoms, testing is not recommended. Complete this self-assessment to learn what to do.


There are three types of testing sites:

Community-based testing sites - These sites are open to all New Jerseyans who are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness

County testing sites - These sites may be restricted to residents or first responders of a specific county. Some also require an appointment and/or prescription from a healthcare provider.

Private testing sites - To access testing at these sites, you must contact your doctor or healthcare provider.

NOTE: Each testing site operates on a schedule and has specific requirements. Please check with that site before visiting as you may be turned away.

About US

Founded in 2010 in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, the Academy for Urban Leadership Charter School is one of Middlesex County's comprehensive Public Charter Schools that serves students in seventh through twelfth grades. The school operates under the terms of a charter granted by the New Jersey Department of Education.

When the school first opened in 2010, it did not have the books, tables, or classrooms necessary for students to be in an adequate learning environment. Even the principal, at the time, had to serve as a lunch aide. Since then, AUL has developed to help students receive the education they deserve. AUL has expanded by opening two new campuses, expecting to provide the opportunity for students to continue to succeed, with graduation and college admission, as two of its goals.

AUL offers an advanced academic track and AP courses.

AUL Mission: To employ an educational design and experience that merges the highest standards of academic excellence while fostering convictions and commitment to social and economic justice.
