COVID-19 Tests Remain Available in Hoboken for Residents & Business Employees

Prompt MD is offering COVID-19 testing at 605 Jackson Street on Monday, October 19 and Monday, October 26 between 8 am and 3 pm on a first-come, first-serve basis for Hoboken residents and Hoboken business employees. Over 150 appointments are still available on Monday, October 19. To schedule an appointment, please visit http://www.hobokennj.gov/promptmd. Results are anticipated to be provided by Prompt MD within 24-48 hours of testing.

Riverside Medical is also continuing testing for Hoboken residents at the pop-up site under the 14th Street Viaduct six days a week, although testing appointments are limited for this upcoming week due to high demand. Appointments can be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis by visiting http://www.hobokennj.gov/riverside. If a resident has signed up for a test with Riverside but can no longer make it, please call 201-863-3346 to cancel the appointment.

For testing with both Prompt MD and Riverside Medical, proof of residency (government identification, utility bill) or employment with a Hoboken business is required at the time of testing.

Residents are asked to keep in mind that a COVID-19 test is recommended at least 5-7 days after a potential exposure, and that many who have contracted the virus do not have symptoms. Receiving a COVID-19 test prior to the 5-7 days after a potential exposure may yield inaccurate results.

If returning from a state on New Jersey’s quarantine list or have had a high-risk exposure, which includes contact of over 10 minutes to someone who has tested positive, living in the same household as someone with COVID-19 or attending a large indoor gathering without face masks, residents should self-quarantine for the full 14 days, even with a negative test result.

If a resident or Hoboken business employee does not have insurance, the City will pay for the cost of a test through both testing sites. Residents obtaining COVID-19 tests at other testing sites or medical facilities are responsible for the cost of those tests.
