Post Date:05/20/2020 6:00 PM

BRANCHBURG – Hunterdon and Somerset County residents who are exhibiting symptoms still have an opportunity to get tested for the coronavirus. The testing site at Raritan Valley Community College, located at 118 Lamington Rd, will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, May 21, Thursday, May 28, Tuesday, June 2 and Thursday, June 4. The testing site will be closed on Tuesday, May 26.

Testing, which is free of charge, is available to Hunterdon and Somerset County residents, age five (5) and older. Because priority is being given to those who are exhibiting symptoms of the coronavirus, residents must have a valid doctor’s prescription, ID and an appointment to receive testing.

Patients are required to provide a copy of their prescription, either by bringing it with them to the testing site, or by sending it via email in advance of the appointment.  Patients or their physicians, can send the written authorization to the Somerset County Department of Health at coronavirus@co.somerset.nj.us, with the word “Prescription” in the subject line. Faxes can be sent to 908-704-8042.

Patients must schedule an appointment for testing at https://somerset-hunterdon.adlabscovidtest.com or by calling 908-237-7150.

Additional dates will be offered based on availability of resources. Check www.co.somerset.nj.us/covid19status for updates.

Anyone who does not have an appointment and a valid prescription or written order from their physician will be turned away.

For the safety, health and security of staff and volunteers, patients must arrive by car. The testing site will not allow entry if residents don’t arrive in a vehicle, even if they have a valid driver’s license and prescription. When coming to the testing center, residents are asked to use the main entrance to the college campus, off of Route 28.
