Hunterdon County Freeholder Board Director Shaun C. Van Doren stated, “Testing and follow up contact tracing are key elements in the President’s plan for re-opening the country. Over the first three testing dates at RVCC, several hundred area residents have registered for testing by appointment. We encourage those in need of testing to register.” 

Testing is free of charge and available to County residents, age five (5) and older. Due to the present limitations on test kit quantities, only those who are exhibiting symptoms, such as fever, dry cough and shortness of breath may be tested . Pre-registration is necessary.
