In order to provide safe patient care and a safe working environment for our healthcare professionals, Hunterdon Health is utilizing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention staffing strategy guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to maintain appropriate staffing throughout our healthcare facilities.
If you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 these are your options for testing:
New Jersey Department of Health free at-home testing: Visit https://learn.vaulthealth.com/nj/
The following CVS locations are offering COVID-19 Testing. Visit https://www.cvs.com/minuteclinic/covid-19-testing to schedule an appointment.

There are many additional testing locations in Hunterdon County and neighboring counties or statewide. They can be found by visiting https://covid19.nj.gov/pages/testing
Beginning March 28, 2023, in all Hunterdon Health facilities, masks will be optional for visitors, patients, and staff, with some exceptions. Masking will be required where it is part of the routine infection prevention process. For example, staff caring for COVID-19 positive and COVID-19 suspected patients will be required to wear masks.
If visitors or patients have symptoms of an infectious illness, had a positive COVID-19 test within the past 10 days, or had exposure to COVID-19 infection, they will be required to wear a mask.
If a COVID-19 resurgence calls for a return to masking, Hunterdon Health says it may change these protocols in the future.
