Parking lot at former N.J. casino to become a coronavirus testing site

Friday 17th April 2020

A former casino will have part of its property become a testing site for the coronavirus.

During a Facebook Live Thursday, Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small Sr. said the city would have two drive-thru testing facilities in operation soon.

The first location will be located at the former Bader Field airport in the parking lot close to Surf Stadium. The mayor has previously heralded the site for coronavirus testing.

The second planned site will be in a parking lot of the former Showboat Casino. The casino closed down in 2014. Plans were discussed in 2019 to turn the property back into a casino.

More details about the testing sites are expected in the near future, the mayor said.
