COVID-19 Testing in Marlboro: The COVID-19 testing trucks will remain the Recreation Center Parking lot until further notice. The testing is done via saliva test, you do not have to be symptomatic and results are emailed in 72 hours. Please review the flyer for dates/times, the QR code to pre-register and what is needed to expedite the process. Please note that there are NO out of pocket costs for the test, whether or not you have insurance. If you receive a bill for the test, please contact the call center at 888-355-0635 Monday through Friday from 9am - 5pm and Saturday and Sunday 9am - 3pm. This same number can be used if you do not have email or do not receive results via email after 72 hours. Please see the FLYER for more.
Lastly, we are expecting a chance of snow and a wintry mix this evening into tomorrow before changing over to all rain. Marlboro DPW trucks have pretreated the roads in advance of the storm. Please plan on slippery road conditions, leave extra time, slow down and allow extra space between you and other vehicles.
Have a good evening and stay safe,
Mayor Jon Hornik
