Hoboken Opens Up Testing to Residents Without COVID-19 Symptoms
Governor Murphy has advocated for widespread testing as part of the plan to reopen the State of New Jersey. In Hoboken, Riverside Medical Group is prepared to offer testing to ALL Hoboken residents—whether or not they are currently exhibiting symptoms.
“As has been stated by medical professionals across the country, an increase in testing is critical to our region in order to re-open the local economy. This is especially important as many individuals may have COVID-19 but are unaware because they do not exhibit any symptoms,” said Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla. To that end, I’m extremely pleased to share that Riverside Medical will now open up rapid, 15-minute testing to all Hoboken residents and frontline workers in Hoboken, with or without symptoms of COVID-19. The Riverside facility is now one of the first testing facilities in New Jersey to offer tests to individuals without symptoms.”
Together, we will restore our economic health by ensuring public health. We will build our resiliency.

According to the Mayor, an appointment is required for the testing. Hoboken residents and essential workers in Hoboken that want to be tested should continue to call the Hoboken City Hall Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) hotline at 201-420-5621 to schedule an appointment. Priority will be given to first responders and employees of all essential businesses, those that have frequent contact with the public, and those with symptoms.
“Thank you again to Dr. Brahmbhatt and the Riverside staff for providing this significant expansion of testing in Hoboken.”
