COVID-19 self-test kits available for Hunterdon County veterans

HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – Hunterdon County Veterans can receive free COVID-19 self-test kits from the County Veteran Services Office, according to Board of County Commissioners Director Susan J. Soloway.

“While we wait for more vaccine to be made available, health officials are encouraging individuals who may be in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 to be tested. The Board wants to ensure our Veterans have access to that testing,” Soloway said.

Soloway, who serves as the Board’s Veterans liaison, said, “The County has designated a number of self-test kits, that can be administered at home, for distribution to Veterans and are available by contacting Veteran Services Officer (VSO) Richard Booth via email at rbooth@co.hunterdon.nj.us or calling 908-788-1361. Mr. Booth can arrange for curbside pickup of the test kits at the County’s Gauntt Place complex in Raritan.”

“Those who served our nation deserve our thanks and support. That is why the County Commissioner Board is providing this service to Veterans during the pandemic,” Soloway said.

Free COVID-19 self-testing is also available to all those who live and work in Hunterdon County, including Veterans, at the Hunterdoncares.org and also at the joint County and HMG test site at 121 Route 31 South in Raritan. To make an appointment, call 908-237-4230.
