Somerset County and Hunterdon County, in collaboration with Raritan Valley Community College will be holding a COVID-19 drive-thru testing site on*:
- Thursday May 28th
- Tuesday June 2nd
- Thursday June 4th
Testing is by appointment only and a valid doctor's prescription is required. Anyone without an appointment will be turned away. The testing site location is Raritan Valley Community College, 118 Lamington Road in Branchburg.
Testing is free of charge and only 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 must schedule an appointment for testing at https://somerset-hunterdon.adlabscovidtest.com or by calling 908-237-7150.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, with the word “Prescription” in the subject line. Faxes can be sent to 908-704-8042.
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.
*Additional dates will be offered based on availability of resources. Check www.co.somerset.nj.us/covid19status for updates.
