Testing is free of charge and only available to Somerset and Hunterdon County residents, age five (5) and older, who are exhibiting symptoms, such as fever, dry cough and shortness of breath. At the test site, individuals must have a written doctor’s authorization and show proof of residency, such as a valid driver’s license or state-issued identification.

Starting Tuesday, April 14, after 9 a.m., residents can make an appointment by visiting https://somerset-hunterdon.adlabscovidtest.com where they will complete a registration form. Residents without access to a computer can call (908) 237-7150.

Anyone who does not have an appointment and a valid prescription or written order from their physician will be turned away.

For the safety, health and security of staff and volunteers, patients must arrive by car. The testing site will not allow entry if residents don’t arrive in a vehicle, even if they have a valid driver’s license and prescription.

"Setting up a testing site for the health and safety of our residents has been the Somerset County Freeholder Board’s number one priority. The Board, administration and staff have been working nonstop for weeks to secure the necessary test kits and PPE supplies,” said Freeholder Director Shanel Y. Robinson.

Hunterdon County Freeholder Director Shaun C. Van Doren said, "I am advised that coupled with social distancing practices, accurate detection and containment of the Coronavirus is the best chance to flatten the curve and reduce the spread of this virus. We thank our health department staff, volunteers and Somerset County partners for cooperatively setting up this joint testing site to protect the residents of Hunterdon and Somerset counties."
