Freeholder Board is Pursuing Joint Test Site
The Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders has been working with Congressman Tom P. Malinowski and Governor Philip D. Murphy to establish a joint COVID-19 test site with Hunterdon County.
Securing enough test kits for residents and personal protective equipment (PPE) for staff remains a major stumbling block.
"We’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to get access to supplies and to set up a test site for the health and safety of our residents,” said Freeholder Director Shanel Y. Robinson. “Our partners in this initiative include Congressman Malinowski, Governor Murphy, the New Jersey Department of Health, the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management and Hunterdon County. We will continue to do everything we can to ensure that all possible resources are made available to residents in Somerset and Hunterdon counties.”
Somerset County will provide updates as more information becomes available.
