RARITAN TOWNSHIP, NJ (Hunterdon County) – Hunterdon County Freeholder Board Director Shaun C. Van Doren has announced that free COVID-19 testing appointments will be available on Mondays, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., for first responders, teachers, critical infrastructure employees, or anyone who has frequent contact with the public while working, starting Monday, November 2.

The COVID-19 testing is administered by the Hunterdon Medical Group (HMG) and is available without prescription at the HMG office, located at 121 Route 31 South, Suite 100, in Raritan Township.

“Expanded testing and contact tracing continue to be effective, key components in the County Department of Health’s successful efforts to contain the spread of the corona virus. The Freeholders have been advised that the appointments for Tuesdays are reaching the limit. We believe that evening hours may be more convenient for some people seeking tests. Should demand grow, the County will look toward added additional days for testing appointments,” van Doren said.
