Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla encourages residents and business employees to get tested for COVID-19 if they were recently in large, indoor settings with multiple households, or at any social gathering where the virus could have been transmitted. The City of Hoboken is continuing to provide over 3,000 COVID-19 tests per week to Hoboken residents and Hoboken business owners in partnership with Riverside Medical Group, Prompt MD, Medicine Man Pharmacy, ivee and the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH). Residents and business employees do not need to have symptoms in order to be tested.
