Hunterdon County and Hunterdon Healthcare’s Hunterdon Medical Group are partnering to provide a local COVID-19 testing location for Hunterdon County residents beginning Tuesday, July 21st, from 1 to 5 pm, Hunterdon County Freeholder Board Director Shaun C. Van Doren has announced.  At this time, the site will only be open on Tuesdays.

Van Doren stated, “The Freeholders are committed to ensuring that individuals who need COVID-19 testing have access in our area. Now that testing for county residents has ended at RVCC, the County and Hunterdon Medical Group are joining together to provide testing at a convenient location in Raritan Township.”

David Skillinge, D.O., Vice President of Medical Practices, Hunterdon Medical Group, echoed Van Doren’s support, stating, “Hunterdon Healthcare and Hunterdon Medical Group have a very collaborative relationship with the Hunterdon County Health Department and both share the mutual goal to actively protect and improve the health and well-being of all residents in Hunterdon County.

We’re extremely pleased to work with our HCHD partners to offer this important test to our communities and continue our previous success with early identification and immediate treatment of individuals who contract the virus as well as help educate ways in which our residents can help prevent its potential spread.”

To receive a free COVID-19 test at the Hunterdon Medical Group (HMG) Testing Site, located at 121 Route 31S, Suite 100, in Raritan Township, residents must have a prescription from their provider and must make an appointment by calling (908) 237-4230 or emailing HMGDOTTesting@hhsnj.org.

Whether by email or phone call, individuals requesting a test should provide their full name and phone number to receive a call-back from a staff member to schedule their test.

Testing priority is based on the current NJDOH and CDC guidelines.

Van Doren noted, “The joint test site at RVCC with Somerset County was an extremely important resource during the time of rising infections.  Hunterdon County’s Freeholders greatly appreciate the cooperation with Somerset County. We are pleased now to partner with healthcare providers at Hunterdon Healthcare system.

The success of the RVCC site could not have happened without the selfless commitment of Hunterdon County’s volunteer Medical Reserve Corps and the County’s Health Department staff.  We thank them for their service. And we thank Hunterdon Medical Group for stepping to the plate to help us to continue the testing for our residents.”

COVID-19 testing is also available at Walmart, 152 NJ-31 N, Raritan Township, and at the CVS, 798 Route 202, in Readington.
