HOBOKEN, NJ - Prompt MD will be offering COVID-19 testing at the Jackson Street Gymnasium (7th & Jackson Street) on August 10-11, and August 17-18. The pop-up COVID-19 testing site will have the capacity to test up to 350 residents per day, with results provided within 2-3 days.
Residents must register online at hobokennj.gov/PromptMD with the required documentation (driver’s license or government-issued identification with a Hoboken address, as well as health insurance information). Walk-ins will not be permitted, as anyone who requests a test must fill out the online registration. The City of Hoboken will pay for the cost of the test for anyone who does not have health insurance.
“Providing a COVID-19 test for anyone who needs it remains at the forefront of our strategy to combat the spread of the virus, and this additional site with PromptMD will help us meet the increasing demand,” said Mayor Bhalla. “I encourage any Hoboken resident who has recently traveled to a high risk state, or may have been in a situation where an exposure may have occurred, to get a COVID-19 test.
The PromptMD site will help take months-long strain off the Riverside Medical Group testing site on 14th Street, which has been up and running since April. The City asks that anyone who is asymptomatic or getting a test for a precautionary reason (ie visiting elderly relatives next weekend) to consider utilizing the pop-up COVID-19 testing site with PromptMD, while symptomatic residents are encourages to utilize the Riverside site.
