COVID-19 testing in Hoboken and New York City has been on the rise, and finding PCR testing without long lines has been a difficult feat for residents the last few days.
While lines continue to be long, the City of Hoboken just announced via Nixle alert on Sunday that it has partnered with Bespoke Health to add COVID-19 testing for the next two weeks.
The City and Bespoke will add 1,000 PCR tests per day on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to keep up with the increased demand for testing, according to its press release.
“Anyone who lives, works or goes to school in Hoboken will be eligible for testing. The cost of testing will be covered for anyone without health insurance,” Mayor Bhalla’s alert stated.
Testing will take place through Bespoke at the Multi-Service Center gymnasium (124 Grand Street) from 8:30 am – 5:30PM on Tuesday and Thursday, and 12PM – 8PM on Wednesday.

Proof of residency, employment, or attendance at a Hoboken school will be required at the time of testing. Anyone seeking a test is reminded that 5-7 days should pass from the date of a COVID-19 exposure, with the exception if symptoms are developed, before getting tested.
Additional testing through Bespoke will be added the week of December 27 as well, which will be announced later this week.
