“Dr. Brahmbhatt informed me that he is unavailable for the next three days, which will result in the Riverside testing site at 14th and Jefferson Street to be closed until Monday. We wish Dr. Brahmbhatt and his staff a restful and well-deserved time off,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said last night.

“Understanding that there is a significant demand for testing, I reached out to Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop earlier today, and he generously offered Hoboken residents the opportunity to be tested at their COVID-19 testing site at their Public Safety Headquarters at 465 Marin Boulevard in Jersey City, adjacent to the Newport Mall.”

Bhalla also indicated that residents should email the Hoboken Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) at with your name, email, phone number and address, to inform CERT that you are going to get a test at this Jersey City site.

Waiting for a response if not necessary and they can then head to the testing site at their convenience, since appointments are no longer required. Proof of Hoboken residency or employment is required.

On Saturday, Jersey City Together has organized another testing site opportunity at 110 North St. between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. and Mile Square City residents are welcome.

Registration for Saturday testing is required here and notifying Hoboken CERT via email is once again requested.

“I extend my sincere thanks to Mayor Fulop and his staff for extending this service to Hoboken residents,” Bhalla also stated.

“From the beginning, Mayor Fulop helped guide us as we acquired COVID-19 tests at the start of the pandemic, and we appreciate Jersey City’s regional partnership in combatting this pandemic.”
