Hunterdon Covid-19 Test Site
To Remain Open Through April 30
County Using Federal Grant Funds For Operations
Clinic Open; Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and
Saturday 10 am to 4 pm and Thursday from noon to 7 pm
With the demand for Covid-19 testing remaining high in Hunterdon County, the Board of Commissioners, at the March 15th Board meeting, on the recommendation of the County Health Department, approved continuing the test site on Reaville Avenue in Flemington through April 30th, using grant funds.
Board Director John E. Lanza stated, “The demand remains high from individuals needing tests for work or school, for travel, to visit loved ones in the hospital, or for people who wish to be careful about spreading the virus at home or work.

The testing facility also offers a resource to businesses, so that both vaccination and testing can be options for employees, particularly for those who have a medical or religious reason that prohibits vaccination.”

Soloway reported at the March 15th Board meeting.

ARTYARD presents INVISIBLE - NOW through Sunday, APRIL 10 and ARTIST ANCESTORS - NOW through Saturday, APRIL 30
Invisible features the work of twelve artists whose practices examine omitted histories, imperceptible forces, and unspoken narratives which render that which is apparent, misleading, or incomplete. In illuminating invisible forms of labor, unspoken emotional states, and unnoticed effects of human presence, the exhibition examines what the author Svetlana Alexievich calls “the missing history — the invisible imprint of our stay on Earth and in time.”
Artist Ancestors is an exhibition of artist Silky Shoemaker’s portraits of iconic cultural figures who have come back from the great beyond to inspire our community with examples of their brave, original, and idiosyncratic lives. Reserve your tickets for an Artist Talk with Silky Shoemaker on Saturday, APRIL 2 at 4 PM by clicking HERE.
